On October 20, 2015, Dr. Ben Richardson will discuss investors’ response to climate change in a seminar hosted by the Carleton Centre for Community Innovation (3ci) at Carleton University. This seminar critically assesses the capacity of the financial sector to address climate change, highlighting the impediments and opportunities offering recommendations for new directions.

“The global fossil fuel divestment movement is an intriguing attempt to leverage positive environmental changes in the economy when many governments have failed to show leadership in addressing climate change.”
