Investing in a Greener Future | Panel Discussion @ ON
Nov 24 @ 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

The world is changing – and your investments should too. High-carbon investments will fall short in a low-carbon world. Yet, Canadian banks have doubled down in energy infrastructure intended to sustain fossil fuel production decades into the future. We all have a role in achieving the low-carbon transition – start by divesting your money from fossil fuels.
Join us in this lively panel discussion event with experts who will teach us how to invest in companies dedicated to promoting sustainability!
Agenda
Presentation: 1:30 p.m.
Q&A: 2:15 p.m.
Reep Open House: 2:30 – 3:30 p.m.
