Colleagues,

Per the discussion at the Board's Investment Committee, and at the suggestion of Cambridge Associates, I have signed Lewis & Clark on to the Investor Agenda's Global Investor Statement To Governments on Climate Change.

Their website is The Investor Agenda, and the statement is under their Policy Agenda. It appears they last updated their list of signatories on September 17, so I don't know how soon our name will appear.
