Climate Wednesdays! Financing a Fossil Fuel-Free Future

May 19, 2021 @ 3:00 PM 4:30 PM

On Wednesday, May 19 at 7 PM

The corporate world is feeling pressure to stop financing fossil fuel projects and start measuring the impact of climate change on their bottom lines. The Biden administration is talking up the need to invest in a green recovery and put the country on the path to a decarbonized economy. How much of this is real and how much is hype? And how can we push business and government to finally leave fossil fuels behind and redirect their immense financial power toward solving the climate crisis?

This workshop will take place online via Zoom. Please to receive the Zoom link prior to the event.
