We at Avida welcome you to our upcoming Webinar on Climate Change Investing. The recent IPCC report was crystal clear: we can still avoid the worst of the climate crisis if we act within a narrow window. With this in mind, investors will need to reconsider their investment portfolios, focusing even more urgently on those areas which yield the highest impact.
The webinar will be the first in a series and will look into the different areas of Climate Investing. Some of the most interesting areas include hydrogen, nuclear energy, clean fossil fuels, solar, wind, biomass. The webinar will look into the viability of these alternatives through the eyes of industry practitioners such as Stéphane Lamoine, CEO of Beam Earth, and large investors such as PGGM.
Each alternative solution has both positives and negatives, therefore understanding the main issues surrounding each solution is vital in making an educated opinion.
We look forward to welcoming you at this interesting and informative webinar!
