Trillium's Environmental Advocacy is Noted in Condé Nast Traveler's Profile of Bristol Bay, Alaska
In Condé Nast Traveler’s in-depth article entitled The War over Alaska’s Soul, Alex Prud’homme writes, “Virtually untouched, Alaska’s Bristol Bay is one of America’s last great wild places. Now, a proposed gargantuan multibillion-dollar mine promises to provide an economic lifeline for locals, but environmentalists warn that it could destroy one of the world’s richest salmon fisheries and imperil the very future of our planet.”
“In 2011, a group of influential investors led by Trillium Asset Management—whose members represent $170 billion in assets and own 13 million shares of Anglo American stock—grew alarmed by Pebble and urged the EPA to assess the impact of the mine on the Bristol Bay watershed. If the EPA deems Pebble a threat to water supplies, it could authorize a review under Section 404(c) of the Clean Water Act, which could block the mine once and for all. A decision is due this spring, and it is the opposition’s best hope”, Prud’homme continues.
