    • The biggest challenges of our time — climate changeand the loss of cultural and biological diversity — knowno political boundaries. Thus we work at home, in ourown bioregion, in ways that can be replicated elsewhere.Ecotrust’s mission is to inspire fresh thinking that createsenvironmental, social and economic value.
    • I n 2007 — our 17th year — Ecotrust did something new. We engaged the Matale Line, a strategic communications firm based in Seattle, Washington, to talkwith board, staff, partners, donors and citizens of Salmon Nation. They held a mirror up to Ecotrust. Whoare we? What do we do best? How do we articulate the essence of this growing organization, engaged inthe tangled web of social, economic and environmental concerns? “Innovate. That’s what you do best,” they said. “No organization combines think-tank and do-tankthe way you do. You helped invent the worlds first environmental bank. You worked with the Haisla FirstNation to protect the magnificent 800,000-acre Kitlope River rain forest, supported the transition from anindustrial to a conservation economy in Clayoquot Sound, and helped create Ecotrust Canada in BritishColumbia. You did the first LEED Gold green historic restoration in the U.S. with the Jean Vollum NaturalCapital Center, created a generous community brand called Salmon Nation, and launched the first forestecosystem investment fund with Ecotrust Forests LLC.” What we do best, they said, is “create, capitalize and catalyze” opportunities for innovation in theregion we call home—but in ways that can be applied worldwide. In this mirror, this new way of talkingabout Ecotrust’s work, we gained a fresh perspective on our long history of commitment to place,brokering capital and expertise, building replicable models, and integrating data to create meaning. Theseare the stories that we feature in this year’s Annual Report. According to The Economist, the best definition of innovation is “fresh thinking that creates marketvalue.” Well, information technology-led innovation has certainly created enormous market value forpeople engaged in the global knowledge economy. But the real challenge of fresh thinking is to address the mutually reinforcing intersection of market,social and environmental value. And that is precisely what Ecotrust does — with the extraordinary supportof our devoted board, staff, council, donors and partners. Cameron Healy, Spencer B.

    • committed to place “Our ancestors,” Bobbie (Sisaawipam) Conner reminds us, “knew the landscape like they knew the lines on their mothers’ faces.” Accepting Ecotrust’s 2007 Award for Indigenous Leadership, Bobbie shared her stories of peoples connected to their homelands and of the commitment born of that rootedness. As director of the Tamástslikt Cultural Institute, she works for cultural preservation, protection and promotion among the Cayuse, Umatilla and Walla Walla peoples of the Columbia Plateau. With this award, Bobbie joins 34 diverse and accomplished leaders in a network that stretches from Alaska to California. Since 2001, Ecotrust has invested millions in support of their community development, land repatriation and restoration initiatives. Addressing a wide range of challenges, their work and ours are united by the understanding that reliable prosperity derives from an intimate knowledge of place. For Ecotrust, honoring and learning from indigenous leadership brings us closer to home.2

    • valuing natures services Good land management yields more than just apples and 2x4s. It also contributes valuable public services, like carbon storage, water quality protection and habitat for fish. As attention turns to markets for nature’s services, including the carbon market now under design by the U.S. states and Canadian provinces of the Western Climate Initiative, there is an enormous opportunity to reward land management that serves the public good. Proving these concepts on the ground is part of the work of Ecotrust Forests LLC, the forestland investment fund managed by Ecotrust, which owns 12,000 acres across western Washington and Oregon. In 2007, we launched an ecosystem services initiative to quantify the benefits of restorative management, shape both policy and markets, and develop standards that are suited to the productive lands of the bioregion. Advancing incentives that count, Ecotrust builds nature’s services into the bottom line.4
    • active on the groundOur watershed connection begins at the kitchen tap. That link explainsthe active interest that the City of Corvallis, Oregon, has taken as oneof many partners in the restoration of the Marys River area, a sub-watershed of the Willamette and the source of the city’s water supply.In 2007, Ecotrust partnered with the Siuslaw National Forest to establishthe Marys Peak Stewardship Group and to facilitate a shared vision ofwatershed and community health among agency officials, forest workers,tribal representatives, environmentalists and other area residents. Workingtogether, the group has secured funds for restoration projects on both publicand private lands. Following the successful launch of the Marys Peak StewardshipGroup, Ecotrust partnered with the Forest Service, National Oceanic andAtmospheric Administration and the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Boardto create the $1 million Whole Watershed Restoration Initiative.Brokering capital and expertise, Ecotrust helps lay thegroundwork for a restorative economy. 5
    • pioneering integration Up in the atmosphere, carbon is carbon. But here along the West Coast, our “footprint" for carbon and other greenhouse gases looks quite different from the national average. In fact, thanks to advanced regulations, green innovations and power generated from the regions mighty rivers, the per- person share of emissions that we produce at home and at work is nearly half that of the U.S. overall. In this region, transportation represents our major challenge. With regional responses to climate change gaining traction, this type of place-based understanding becomes essential. In 2007, as the Western Climate Initiative — a joint effort by six U.S. states and two Canadian provinces — took form, Ecotrust worked with the Stockholm Environment Institute to perform a bioregional carbon analysis that goes beyond the jurisdictions of any of the initiatives members. Articulating a path to a low-carbon future is one way that Ecotrust integrates disparate data to create meaning.6
    • seeding successImagine a landscape on which farms of all shapes and sizes thrive. Back in2001, when the Portland Chapter of the Chefs Collaborative began buildinga regional food economy handshake by handshake, no one knew whatthe benefits would be. Seven years later, Ecotrust’s partnership with theCollaborative on the annual Farmer-Chef Connection conference and Guideto Local and Seasonal Products has helped farmers and food buyers create a$20 million trade network in regional foods. Expanding on these successes, in 2007 we created the Building LocalFood Networks toolkit and an online learning community to help othersaround the country jumpstart their own market connections programs.“Ecotrust’s toolkit was the spark that ignited the farm-to-fork revolution inNew Orleans,” says Mischa Byruck, who recently organized that city’s firstmeetup.Replicable models are an Ecotrust hallmark, both in ourbioregion and beyond. 7
    • making markets work Conventional wisdom says that owners make good stewards. That is part of the rationale behind fisheries “privatizations” in Alaska and British Columbia. Fishermen are allotted tradable quota shares and managers cap the harvest with a total allowable catch. But looking at the privatization of Alaska’s halibut and sablefish fisheries, we see that without clear social and environmental objectives from the start, there can be major shifts of ownership, with some coastal communities locked out. In response, Ecotrust launched the North Pacific Fisheries Trust, which will deploy significant funds in support of community-based fisheries along the West Coast. To address new market opportunities on the front end, we convened a 2007 workshop with market design experts to discuss how specific quota programs can deliver greater social, ecological and financial value. Strengthening community ownership and access: It’s an application of Ecotrusts fresh economic thinking.8
