The Untaken Safer Alternative, Fiduciary Finance, Climate Security

Bank of Nature's planet-scale proposal to deliver a dignified future

“Is it just about money?”

Bank of Nature is about money with duty — and that makes all the difference.

It is money that is available right now to make a positive difference at the largest scales. We mean really big money, enough to buy the richest 20 companies in the world — like Apple and Saudi Aramco — and have many trillions left over.

It’s the money that operates at the scale of nature and of climate. That’s important when climate is bigger than government and bigger than industry — and needs a far richer stewardship hero.

Trillion-dollar pension funds have the mission, duty and scale to lead on climate… but don’t yet. We ask: “Why not — when the potential for fiduciary leadership is so potent?”

Answer: They are in legal breach of their duty. Fix that and we fix so much more simply because pension savings, pinned vividly to the future, are behemoth and bigger than anything else.

At Bank of Nature, we’re building a safer alternative path toward #climatehope that uses vast savings and tools that already exist: The Fiduciary Way.

We just need to wake them up.

The pivot is the intergenerational “pension promise” — and that means a whole lot more than your grandparents’ comfortable retirements.

Trillion-dollar pensions are so big that they literally shape the economy that we all live in. How do they make their returns? This is the fiduciary breach — making ever-more vivid the dangerous booms and busts and evermore plain the limits to growth that we all deal with everyday.

Fix the breach for intergenerational beneficiaries of vast global pension savings and we fix a lot of broken issues that make the future uncertain for all of us. Fix fiduciary duty, then we can talk about how nature is a bank with nature-scale accounts that can regenerate our environment because it’s the “Fiduciary Way”.

The goal is stewardship: Using fiduciary money to curate the future into which we should all want to retire — because that is what it is designed to do.

Join our conversation about environmental philosophy, finance reform, legislative and litigation innovation, economic transformation, arts-science-culture and a climate-scale response to the biggest global challenges — like climate. Find out what “money with strings” can do for all of us.

Bank of Nature is The Untaken Safer Alternative, the next last line of defense in the climate impasse and a strategy to reengage fiduciary values in an economy that takes care of the future. We invite contributions that make connections, improve our plan and move it forward.
