When companies are engaging in bad corporate behavior, how do you know which companies to invest in? Nebraskans for Solar presents a discussion on how to invest in a clean energy economy, featuring Tyler Mainquist, a financial advisor with Central Financial Services.
This presentation will provide practical methods for implementing sustainable, responsible and impact (SRI) investing — including how to avoid carbon-intensive and other polluting industries, and instead support companies that are working to reduce, mitigate, and/or adapt to the changing global climate.
Additional material will cover recent updates including topics such as comparisons against traditional investing, as well as the use of companies’ ESG (environmental, social, governance) data to reduce financial risk by avoiding bad corporate behavior.
