The Role of Investors in Fostering a Just Transition

 

We are back from our brief summer break with an exciting webinar exploring the Just Transition framework and how investors can support it. 

Investors addressing climate change and prioritizing renewable energy investments are more and more grappling with how a transition away from a fossil fuel economy can benefit all. Who is being left behind, especially among the most vulnerable and in already impacted communities? 

The Just Transition Framework embodies the notion that we cannot get a pass on the social side when addressing the environmental side. In this webinar, we will explore opportunities for investor action to build an equitable future as we move away from fossil fuels. Vonda Brunsting, formerly of the SEIU Capital Stewardship and now Program Manager for the Just Transition project at Harvard's Initiative for Responsible Investment will explain the underpinnings of the framework as well as the guidance that she and her co-authors, David Wood and Nick Robins, are currently finalizing.
