The virtual event will take place on Wednesday, December 1, 2021, from 12:30 to 1:45PM ET. It will feature a panel of experts on climate research and sustainability. The panel, which will be moderated by Mary Kate Wold, CEO and President of CPG, will discuss how industries and companies are navigating the current environment.
"As world governments and businesses ramp up their strategies to mitigate and adapt to climate change, the movement toward lower carbon economies will inevitably create opportunities and risks for investors," said Ms. Wold. "As fiduciaries, it's our job to ensure that we identify those opportunities and mitigate the risks so we remain well positioned to provide benefits to those who serve The Episcopal Church for decades to come. We are excited to host this event as part of our series of conversations on socially responsible investing and encourage those interested in learning more to join us on December 1."
The panelists will include Chris Goolgasian, Senior Managing Director and Director, Climate Research, Wellington; James Magor, Director, Sustainability, Actis; and June Yearwood, Managing Director, Investments, Church Pension Group.
