A Note From Kristin Remenschneider, Big Path Capital Project Manager
At Big Path Capital, we back up our commitment to positive change with actions through our work with mission-aligned companies and funds and our ongoing efforts to contribute to the greater good. It’s an honor to work for a company that’s both a Certified B Corporation and a member of 1% for the Planet (more on that below!).
These unique aspects of our company have had a profound impact on my life. It’s an incredible feeling to be a part of an organization that puts a strong emphasis on our well-being and whose mission aligns with my personal values.
The challenges our world faces today beg for us to take action to create a better tomorrow. Your commitment to a brighter future inspires us to continue our work advancing an equitable, sustainable economy. We will only achieve the change we seek through collaboration.
We are so grateful to be on this path with you. On behalf of everyone at Big Path Capital, I wish you the happiest of holidays.
