A conversation with Jeremy Barnicle of Ecotrust
Jeffrey Burch, managing director, Southwest Food and Agribusiness at Bank of the West, recently sat down with Jeremy Barnicle, executive director of Ecotrust, an Oregon-based organization that fosters economic opportunity, social equity, and environmental well-being, and 2017 Innovation Award winner in our annual Philanthropy Awards.
Barnicle talked about the importance of using market-oriented tools to promote Ecotrust’s mission – to restore the environment and grow economic opportunities, as part of the Nasdaq Entrepreneurship Center’s “Intersection of Entrepreneurship & Climate Innovation” event, sponsored by Bank of the West and held in conjunction with the recent Global Climate Action Summit.
“To see how you can use for-profit entities to help advance social or environmental outcome is really great,” Barnicle noted.
