"When I look at how we have developed over the last 100 years, I realize we are out of balance and making choices that don’t make sense in terms of economics and the environment. I had my ‘ah-ha’ moment in real estate years ago when I realized that long-term investment (designing projects to last for generations and to meet diverse needs) created better value. I had a similar ‘ah-ha’ moment about how we steward and live with land while volunteering for The Nature Conservancy and it has evolved into Bio-Logical Capital. Now, as a company, our challenge is to provide the ‘ah-ha’ moment for the business world to prove the business case that long-term investment that integrates diverse sustainable business development with ecological restoration and conservation is better for investors, communities and the land."
