Presentation Description

Yes, it IS your business, our business. How to help mitigate the effects of climate change caused by Big Business. Hence, NYSPHA has teamed up with Morgan Stanley for a first-ever webinar! It will be educational only, not a pitch, and interactive.

How do YOU, WE, apply pressure to seemingly autonomous, profit-seeking fossil fuel giants who are recklessly destroying our environment and degrading ours and our families’ health? We’ll learn about ESG (Environment,Social, Governance) factors that investment firms use to move the needle toward our incontrovertible Public Health values.

Just as reducing your own carbon footprint may not be as easy or straightforward as you would like, building a green portfolio can take time and patience. There are a range of approaches you can take to generate potential positive financial returns while benefiting the environment.

In this webinar, Jenya Shandina and Catherine Foy will discuss the different ways that your portfolio can help make a positive impact.
