Change Lab Re-investment

A lot of members are interested in withdrawing their funds from fossil fuels and reinvesting in the transition to a low-carbon society. We want to explore with them how they can discuss this with financial institutions.

Ancienne Belgique, Brussels

 

A great number of countries have signed the COP21 agreement to keep the average rise in the earth’s temperature below 2°C. This commitment has major consequences for fossil fuels. After all, fossil fuel emissions contribute significantly to climate change. We want to have a transparent debate with our members about the right investments for the future.

Are you, as an investor, prepared to make a commitment in that direction? Or are you hesitating because you are not exactly sure yet what it involves? Join our learning network on climate investments and find out together with other members how you can engage your financial institution in an effective dialogue about this.
