The Sustainable Living Institute of Maui (SLIM) and EdVenture (formerly VITEC) at UH Maui College present their next Sustainable Business Pau Hana, “Green Business and Investing Locally”.

The emerging green economy reflects profound shifts in how Americans are shopping, banking, and investing. As consumers consider the environmental, social, and governance issues of the companies making the products and services they purchase, the movement to “go green” has mainstreamed in recent years. Discover exciting opportunities to use money as a tool for social justice, community development, corporate reform, and ecological sustainability. Learn how to grow the green economy through education, standards, advocacy, and investment in a free provocative presentation with Michael Kramer and James Frazier of Hawaii’s own Natural Investments LLC at 5:30pm on January 26, 2012 at Maui College. Whether you want to create a Hawaii-recognized Sustainable Business Corporation, invest in our local green economy, make capitalism more compassionate and ecologically wise, or help alleviate poverty and build community capacity, many strategies are available today to align your values with your business operations, purchases, and investments. You’ll be amazed to hear what’s happening here in Hawaii to grow our green economy, and how these efforts connect to national and global regenerative and responsible practices and initiatives.

Michael Kramer is an Accredited Investment Fiduciary, Managing Partner, and Director of Social Research at Natural Investments LLC. Michael has lived on Hawai`i Island since 1999, where he founded the Kuleana Green Business Program of the Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce in 2005 as well as the Kona Earth Festival. He currently serves on the board of the Sustainability Association of Hawai`i and the Hawai`i Alliance for a Local Economy, and is a 20-year permaculture teacher and teacher trainer.
