Speaker: Tyler McCullough, Ceres
Climate Change is having significant consequences on the world’s people, ecosystems, and economies. In 1989, after the Exxon Valdez oil spill, a group of investors asked if they could use their influence to protect the planet and Ceres was born. Today, it is more important than ever that investors, companies, and policymakers work together to address climate-related economic risks and opportunities. In this lecture, Tyler McCullough will discuss how investors are working with the companies they own to reduce GHG emissions, companies that are making progress and those that are lagging, and how companies can be influential advocates for climate policy at the state and federal levels.
