The Green Movement Should Help Foster Environmental Progress, Turner Investment Partners Position Paper Says

The Green Movement Should Help Foster Environmental Progress, Turner Investment Partners Position Paper Says


BERWYN, Pa.---As Kermit the Frog once said, “It’s not easy being green.” Corporate America is finding that to be the case as it seeks to combat climate change, according to the latest position paper by Turner Investment Partners.

The paper, entitled How green is my (and your) planet, notes that U.S. companies have found it difficult initially to quantify the effectiveness of some of their green efforts. But those efforts may ultimately not only help counteract climate change, but also present some lucrative investment opportunities, especially in four green technologies: solar, wind, biofuels, and fuel cell.

Turner Investment Partners, an investment-management firm that invests in core, growth, and value stocks on behalf of institutions and individuals, publishes position papers commenting on business and investment issues each quarter.

Written by Bill McVail and Robb Parlanti, senior portfolio managers/security analysts, the paper assesses some of the environmental, social, and economic catalysts driving corporate America's involvement in the green movement and identifies the primary risks that may jeopardize the movement.

Potentially representing “the most dramatic change in business in more than a century,” the green movement “should pick up momentum as it matures and as corporate America becomes more surefooted,” according to the portfolio managers. At the same time, they conclude that genuine environmental progress will require an immense application of resolve, intelligence, ingenuity, and capital globally.
