Climate Change & Investing, Smithers

October 4, 2007

Just as government is becoming more aware of climate change, investors need to know about the inherent risks and opportunities presented. Join Stephen Whipp for an evening to examine this critical topic.

People need information about the companies and sectors they are investing in: the oil sands, the different kinds of renewable energies. Are we making business decisions based on profit or on our effects on people and the environment or on all three? Sustainability is about making a difference in terms of our footprint on the world, whether that is environmentally or socially and making a profit. The same decision making process and values are used to purchase locally that should be used in choosing to invest ethically.

Time: 7 pm

Venue:The Old Church (corner of King St and First Avenue)

Pre-registration or to book an appointment.
