SocialFunds.com Publishes the Rio + 10 Article Series

(Brattleboro, VT)--Throughout the summer of 2002, www.SocialFunds.com published a weekly article series on the environmental, social, and economic issues relating to the World Summit on Sustainable Development. Entitled the "Rio + 10" articles, the stories include overviews of the previous two Earth Summits, analysis of how the private sector is both facilitating and hampering sustainable development, and reviews of relevant publications. Beginning today, SocialFunds.com is devoting a section of the site to the 14 articles. They are grouped as a series and can be read online or quickly downloaded as a single document.

"SocialFunds.com has done us proud," writes Tessa Tennant, executive chair of the Association for Sustainable and Responsible Investment in Asia (ASrIA). Ms. Tennant wrote the Introduction to the article digest and adds, "In this collection of short essays, Bill Baue has brought the point of the Earth Summit process alive to investors, in particular to socially responsible investors (SRI)."

While SocialFunds.com geared its coverage of the Johannesburg Summit toward socially responsible investors, the Rio + 10 series addresses a much broader range of concerns. Interested readers can find the Rio + 10 series on the SocialFunds.com homepage or directly at www.socialfunds.com/page.cgi/rio.html.

The World Summit on Sustainable Development addressed the environmental and social impacts of global economic development and took place August 26-September 4, 2002 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
