About

Authentic, Woman-led, Employee-owned Global ESG Investors since 2003.

Our Vision

Redesign capitalism to require human, community, and environmental well-being as essential for financial success

Our Mission

Activate investor capital toward solutions for people and planet.

Our Name

Originally a common pasture for cattle grazing, since 1634 the Boston Common has served as a community space owned by no one, yet essential to all. Like “the Common”, our work stands at the intersection of the economic and social realms, fostering equitable prosperity in our local and global community.
