GMO Divestment

As the companies that produce genetically modified organisms [GMOs] promote their use throughout the global food chain, farmers and consumers have united to demand that foods containing GMOs be clearly labeled. This call for transparency is being fought by the “Big Six” chemical companies, who are using their cash and clout to block sensible labeling laws at the state and federal level.
Inspired by the movement to divest from fossil fuels, many investors are now looking to remove GMO producers from their portfolios. Progressive Asset Management has long been an active supporter of the organic farming community and the broader campaign to make the food supply healthier, safer and more sustainable.
A PAM Boston advisor can help you keep GMOs out of your portfolio, as well as your diet.
