Responsible Investment at Harvard was launched in the spring of 2013 to hold Harvard accountable for the ethical practices of companies it invests in using its endowment. In particular, RI@H would like to work with those affected by Harvard’s timber plantations in Argentina.
In April, the Responsible Investment at Harvard Coalition brought two organizers from Corrientes, Argentina to Harvard Yard as part of their Shame Tour and Week of Action. Their purpose was to stop Harvard’s mismanagement and exploitation of land in Argentina. The two guests were Emilio Spataro, an organizer from Argentina, and Adrian Obregon, a local leader in Corrientes.
