The Vancouver Climate Risk Forum

December 05, 2014
Print

On December 5, you are invited to join local leaders and investment professionals to talk about the impact of climate risk on our pensions, schools, cities, foundations, churches, and other public institutions.

Scientists and organizations like the International Energy Agency are warning that most fossil fuel reserves need to stay buried if we hope to avoid the worst effects of global warming. At the same time, more than a trillion dollars a year over the next 36 years must be invested in clean energy if we hope to limit warming to two degrees Celsius.

The Vancouver Climate Risk Forum looks to accelerate this transition to a safer, cleaner economy by supporting local institutional investors looking to manage climate risk and engage companies to improve their practices on clean energy and carbon. Local leaders and investment professionals are invited to participate in this Vancouver forum, building on similar events hosted in Seattle, Boston and San Francisco.

 
Where: Downtown Vancouver, British Columbia
When: December 5, 8:30-4:30PM, with public keynote at 7PM.
Who: Investment professionals, decision-makers, local leaders
Cost: $100 ($75 labour/government; $50 not-for-profit/academic).

Breakfast and lunch included. Evening keynote is public and free of charge.
