Our Unique Approach

 

What is the Sustainability Investment Leadership Council (SILC)?

Founded in 2015, the Sustainability Investment Leadership Council (SILC) works with corporations, accounting firms, law firms, and investment firms to integrate sustainability as part of a firm’s overall growth strategy. We work to spark innovation by discussing ideas that align with economic opportunities and environmental, social and other stewardship to firms’ shareholders and stakeholders.
