DENVER, Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The 28th Annual SRI Conference, which hosted more than 800 investment professional attendees, honored Richard Liroff, founder and executive director of Investor Environmental Health Network (IEHN), and Cliff Feigenbaum, founder and managing editor of GreenMoney Journal, with the 2017 SRI Service Award. The winners were selected by the conference attendees and the award was presented by the 2016 SRI Service Award winner, Lincoln Pain.
The Award recognizes individuals that demonstrate a range of contributions to the field, including industry leadership, significant innovations, high standards of ethical conduct, cooperation and communication and success in expanding the influence of investing for a sustainable future.
Under Liroff's leadership, IEHN is now a collaborative partnership of investors, representing $55 billion in assets under management (AUM). IEHN encourages companies to reduce and eliminate toxic chemicals in products and supply chains. Their work has also contributed to the Chemical Footprint Project, whose goal is to measure and report on global chemical use, and is currently supported by investors with $2.3 trillion AUM.
Feigenbaum has acted as an independent voice increasing the awareness and growth of SRI, environmental, social and governance issues, and corporate social responsibility for over two decades. He has helped the readers of GreenMoney Journal make informed financial decisions from the stock market to the supermarket through his work as a long-standing industry leader.
"Richard and Cliff's work in the SRI space and their positions as leaders have been crucial to helping investors embrace the idea that purpose and profit are not mutually exclusive," said Steve Schueth, producer of The SRI Conference and president of First Affirmative Financial Network. "Thanks to their great efforts, investors are actively making a positive impact on today's most pressing environmental and social challenges."
