Sydney resident, Damian Lynch, pioneered the ethical investment industry in Australia in the 1980s with his company, August Investments. At that time, the company had an office at the Permaculture Epicentre in Enmore. Damien set up Ecoforest Pty Ltd in the late 1990s, a forestry investment company with a mixed hardwood plantation in the Hunter region.

Damien was originally inspired by Bill Mollison and went on to complete a Permaculture Design Course (PDC). He taught the economics components of the Pacific Edge PDC in the late 1990s. Damien's gift to permaculture and sustainability has been to show that we can all use our money towards sustainable ends.
