Cindy Bohlen Named Notable Leader in Sustainability by BizTimes.
Milwaukee (September, 13 2023).
Riverwater Partners congratulates our Director of Responsible Investing and Chief Mindfulness Officer Cindy Bohlen for being named to the inaugural BizTimes Media Notable Leaders in Sustainability list.
Cindy Bohlen is the driving force for sustainability and responsibility at Riverwater Partners, leading our certification and reporting efforts, including B Corporation Certification and reporting to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment. Cindy also was integral to Riverwater Partners becoming a Water Champion through The Water Council.
Promoting sustainability within Riverwater, Cindy implemented tracking of various metrics like volunteer hours, carbon emissions, diversity data, training hours, charitable donations, steps taken, and security performance. This data-driven approach allows Riverwater to gauge its impact over time and pinpoint areas for improvement.
As responsible investors, Riverwater guides investee companies on their sustainability journeys. Cindy takes charge of engaging executives to demonstrate how sustainability benefits all stakeholders and improves financial outcomes. In 2022 alone, Riverwater provided educational resources to 19 companies, with five starting to publicly report their sustainability efforts—a significant milestone. Six of the companies engaged in 2021 have also begun publicly reporting their sustainability initiatives.
Cindy goes beyond her regular duties to mentor interns, teaching them about corporate sustainability in general and, specifically as it relates to financial analysis. She encourages them to enhance Riverwater’s sustainability research process, and their contributions are continually utilized by our Asset Management Research team. She maintains regular communication with her intern and provides ongoing mentorship even after they complete the internship.
Cindy’s dedication extends beyond work, as she serves as the Board President for the Seventh Generation Interfaith Coalition for Responsible Investment. She is also an active member of the Green Tree Garden Club where her committee recommended grants to support nature education at Boerner Botanical Garden, land stewardship at Urban Ecology Center, and native tree planting at Lake Park.
