“We are very pleased to welcome Greenchip to the Responsible Investment Association,” said Dustyn Lanz, CEO of the RIA. “Greenchip is a champion for sustainability-themed investing, and we look forward to working with them to engage and educate Canadian investors about the value of incorporating sustainability into investment decisions.”
The RIA is Canada’s industry association dedicated to advancing responsible investment, which refers to the incorporation of ESG factors into the selection and management of investments.

About Greenchip Financial
Greenchip has been investing exclusively in the global environmental economy since 2007. We believe that a structural energy transition is underway, from fossil fuels to renewable energy, from energy inefficient processes to more efficient ones. Driven by resource scarcity and ecological limitations this transition will create both new risks and historic opportunities. We believe our sector focus combined with a proven value discipline is a logical path to superior investment returns.
