October 20, 2021 Recording – Putting your money where it can fight climate change
October 20, 2021 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm
This webinar will examine how your retirement savings can help defuse the growing climate crisis and pave the transition to a sustainable planet. It will discuss investment products such as impact funds, mutual funds, green bonds and exchange-traded funds claiming to decarbonize the economy, and how financial advisors can be engaged in the conversation.
The webinar is being brought to Ottawa Branch of the National Association of Federal Retirees by Climate Legacy who seek to involve seniors in climate action and the Group of 78 an informal association of Canadians seeking to promote global priorities for peace and disarmament, equitable and sustainable development, and a strong and revitalized United Nations system.
