Last month, Essex Environmental Opportunities Fund (EEOF) portfolio manager Bill Page was featured in a Climate Investing Roundtable hosted by Collaboration Capital. The goal of the Roundtable was to state the case for moving the needle on climate solutions. The Fund invests in the technologies that the Adviser believes are solving the world’s environmental challenges, and solves six important U.N. Sustainable Development Goals such as climate action, clean water and sanitation, and affordable and clean energy.
