Evie Liu is a reporter at New York-based financial magazine Barron's. During her five years there, she's covered various beats including the stock market, asset management, and economic trends.
In recent years, Evie has developed a strong interest in the green economy. She's written about investment opportunities in clean-energy companies, global governments' effort to regulate corporate disclosure, the rising trend of climate-related shareholder activism, and more. She also helped shape Barron's two large annual packages—the 100 Most Sustainable Companies and the ranking of the Top-Performing Sustainable Funds.
Evie believes it's imperative for journalists to understand how sustainable business is altering the economy, and more importantly, to keep tabs on potential greenwashing. Many companies have announced ambitious plans to reduce carbon emissions and become more environmentally friendly. But the road ahead is challenging given the global energy crisis, climate change, and an impending global recession.
