Lynn Forester de Rothschild: ‘Investors should engage more, not divest’
British-American billionaire businesswoman Lynn Forester de Rothschild, as the founder of the Council for Inclusive Capitalism, has been working with a +350-member community of the world’s top CEOs for a more sustainable form of capitalism since 2020.
The group includes a range of asset owners, pension funds as well as some of the biggest corporate household names, such as Paypal, Bank of America and Salesforce.
In March, Forester de Rothschild hosted the Council’s first-ever meeting, which took place at Lambeth Palace in London and was attended by about 30 global CEOs of corporates and investors to discuss the ongoing and future commitments to furthering sustainability and net zero principles.
Following this kickoff event, Net Zero Investor sat down with Forester de Rothschild, who is also the founder of San Francisco-based Inclusive Capital Partners.
In this exclusive interview, the member of the world-famous banking dynasty shares her take on asset owners’ role in driving the net zero agenda and highlights the importance and impact of active stewardship and engagement efforts.
