Wells Fargo Launches $100-Million Environmental Program

Banking giant Wells Fargo said Tuesday that it will award $100-million in grants to universities and nonprofit green groups over the next eight years to pursue environmental programs, reports the San Francisco Business Times.

The effort began with a $15-million, five-year commitment to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. The larger grant program will aim to promote sustainable agriculture and forestry, land and water conservation, urban ecosystems, and clean energy.
