WRI's Jonathan Lash Named One of Top 100 Most Influential Business Leaders


(CSRwire) WASHINGTON, D.C. Jonathan Lash, president of the World Resources Institute (WRI), has been named one of the world's Top 100 Most Influential People in Finance, in the annual ranking of Treasury & Risk Management magazine.

Lash is the only leader of a non-profit environmental organization to make the list, and judges for the list said he and WRI's work with companies most recently General Electric "to reform business approaches to the environment and development" make Lash a "Washington warrior" and someone from whom "you can expect big things in the next year."
Pat Wechsler, editorial director of Treasury & Risk Management magazine, said, "Look at the issue of climate change, which is our cover story in the June issue, and you can't help but recognize that the key to good business management in the decades to come will be increasingly tied to the sustainability of a company's strategies, its products and its risk management based on growing environmental risks but also based on shareholder and consumer concerns about corporate accountability and responsibility.

"We were pleased to include WRI's Jonathan Lash in our list of the 100 Most Influential People in Finance because he and his Institute represent that vision of the future," added Wechsler, whose 47,000 closed-circulation monthly magazine serves Fortune 1000 CFOs, treasurers and controllers.

Lash and WRI have worked closely with many of the world's most important companies in formulating their internal sustainable practices and policies, including the likes of Citigroup, Shell, Alcoa and GE, whose CEO Jeffrey Immelt was also named to the list for likely becoming "the poster executive for companies becoming more proactive about climate change."

For more than a decade, WRI's Sustainable Enterprise Program has harnessed the power of business to create profitable solutions to environment and development challenges. WRI is the only organization that brings together corporations, entrepreneurs, investors, and business schools to accelerate change in business practice. The program improves people's lives and the environment by helping business leaders and new markets thrive.

Friends of the Peace Corps 170,000  strong Date: April 2 2005 No: 543 Friends of the Peace Corps 170,000 strong
170,000 is a very special number for the RPCV community - it's the number of Volunteers who have served in the Peace Corps since 1961. It's also a number that is very special to us because March is the first month since our founding in January, 2001 that our readership has exceeded 170,000. And while we know that not everyone who comes to this site is an RPCV, they are all "Friends of the Peace Corps." Thanks everybody for making PCOL your source of news for the Returned Volunteer community.
