Live Stream: Divestment: A Call to Arms vs. Sustainable Investing: A Catalyst for Global Change

November 6, 2013 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Watch a live stream of the weekly Frontiers in the Environment talks at the University of Minnesota!

Matthew Fitzmaurice, Co-Founder & Managing Member at AWJ Capital Partners LLC

The movement to divest of fossil fuel–related companies has garnered a lot of attention recently. Some view it as a solution to climate change and its attendant issues. Fitzmaurice will discuss what has and can be achieved through divestment. He also will articulate why the movement needs to quickly move beyond divestment to additionally articulate “sustainable investment” goals. Fitzmaurice brings a valuable perspective to this important global discourse because he understands both the movement’s views and also the “institutional” investment community’s views. He hopes this new view might bridge the gap and allow results to be achieved more quickly.

    Will there be a way to ask questions of the speaker or interact in some way?
