Engaged Investment & Climate Change Conference

How can investors help shape an effective response to the challenge of climate change? Some have argued that one potentially powerful lever is for institutions such as Harvard to divest from fossil fuel companies, while others have argued that a policy of direct engagement is likely to be more effective. We invite you to join this lively discussion among faculty and experts in the field, and decide for yourself! Harvard ID required.
