Every year, the Joan Bavaria Award for Building Sustainability into Capital Markets recognizes a unique investor, business, or NGO leader who is working to transform the capital markets into a system that balances economic prosperity with social and environmental concerns. The Joan Bavaria Award is presented by Ceres and Trillium Asset Management at the annual Ceres Conference, being held next year from April 24-26 in Boston, MA.
Joan Bavaria founded Trillium in 1982 to provide a space for clients to invest their money in alignment with their values. Under Joan’s visionary leadership, Trillium grew to become one of the largest SRI investment firms in the U.S. Joan was proud to use Trillium as an incubator to create organizations with impact, helping to nurture US SIF, Ceres, and Open MIC.
