Progressive Investment Management, a pioneer in the field of social and environmental investing since 1982, is based in Portland and Eugene, Oregon. Carsten Henningsen and Rob Baird are the founding directors and shareholders with more than 30 years’ experience in the field. For three decades we have remained an independent privately-held firm.
We believe that environmental sustainability is a fundamental human challenge and a tremendous business opportunity. We recognize that meeting the basic needs of all people is a human right and a tremendous challenge. We designed Progressive to address the ecological risks and opportunities of the investment process. Our concerns about the ecological and human crisis began three decades ago, and we continue to critically examine our assumptions and approach every day.
Our work has been recognized by The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Fortune, Barron’s, USA Today, Kiplinger, Morningstar, BusinessWeek, Chicago Tribune, SmartMoney, MarketWatch, CNBC and several books.
Our single focus is to achieve excellence in social and environmental investing for the benefit of the world and our clients.
