Hermosa Beach, CA, June 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (via Blockchain Wire) As part of Alpha Sigma Capital's commitment to becoming a zero-carbon digital asset fund focused on the blockchain economy and the shift to a decentralized Web3 infrastructure, announced today that Enzo Villani, CEO and Chief Investment Officer has joined the Council for Inclusive Capitalism. The Council is a global nonprofit organization that joins moral and market imperatives to build a more inclusive, sustainable, and trusted economic system that addresses the needs of our people and the planet.

“I am thrilled to welcome Enzo Villani to the Council and look forward to working with them as they take the necessary actions to ensure a better future for us all,” said Meredith Sumpter, CEO of the Council for Inclusive Capitalism. 

The Council for Inclusive Capitalism is rooted in action. The Council is led by CEOs and global leaders who commit their organizations to specific actions that create long-term value for all stakeholders. 

Council members are accountable for their actions. Members' commitments are measurable and made public on the Council's online platform. These commitments are intended to motivate and challenge others to bring their own reform ideas to the movement.

The Council is inclusive. Council members lead organizations of all sizes, across all sectors and geographies. It will take the conscious and collective action of all Council members—from industry leaders to mid-caps to small business owners—to scale the impact needed for capitalism to become more inclusive and sustainable.

The Council was launched in December 2020 with the belief that businesses have a responsibility and the capability to create stronger, fairer, and more dynamic economies and societies. Council membership is open to all companies and organizations who are willing to make measurable, public commitments toward more inclusive and sustainable business practices.
