To the question “What does Bank of Nature do?”
10 ways Bank of Nature transforms the climate crisis narrative
As we continue to meet with people and collaborators about how Bank of Nature transforms our future and climate-security through fiduciary values and fiduciary money, we’ve developed a top 10 list that summarizes our new offering into bite-sized actions. Let us know how these resonate with you.
To the question “What does Bank of Nature do?”, we are:
1. Introducing an intergenerational fiduciary framework to rethink money, finance, climate and a dignified future. It proves why the non-fiduciary status quo led by government and industry fails to deliver multi-generational security
2. Launching a fiduciary business that acts as a legal proxy for nature and puts “civil society” on superior financial footing compared to “government” and “industry/enterprise/markets”
3. Compelling the world's trillion-dollar pensions and endowments to direct money to planet-scale climate security for the good of their own beneficiaries – or risk a legal breach of fiduciary duty.
4. Focussing civil society on fiduciaries as a powerful partner in curating a climate-secure future, when governments and enterprises have failed to deliver – or are unwilling to deliver – climate security
5. Rejecting “business as usual” to succeed through stewardship (vs. speculation), sufficiency economics (vs. growth economics) and an interactive (vs. extractive) partnership with nature
6. Expanding the legal/policy definitions of “fiduciary duty” – rules barely changed in 1000 years – to include climate security
7. Revising (for the climate crisis era) the intention and impacts of the "prudent person standard of care”, a legal construct that guides fiduciaries in today’s $56-trillion global pension/retirement savings sector
8. Embodying an “untaken safer alternative path”, a legal construct that shakes the status quo toward global climate security and provides fiduciaries with a safer stewardship option that indemnifies them against future legal claims
9. Repaying our “debt to nature” created by negative externalities – estimated to be 41 cents of every dollar of earnings – to reinvest in nature through fiduciary strategies respectful of science and culture
10. Building (hand-in-hand with civil society) a future worth living in that is guided by fiduciary values.
