Climate, the Financial Sector and Shareholder Action
Location: The Guide Hall, 1 Faversham Rd, Canterbury
Heard of Market Forces? Financial climate activism is driving the flight of global capital away from fossil corporates! Campaigners Pablo Brait and Rachel Deans explain how together we can hold corporates accountable, drive divestment, and protect the planet through funding the clean energy transition. It's time to make our funds, banks and insurance companies part of the solution!
This January, CEO Larry Fink recently has overhauled the largest global fund BlackRock's approach to carbon, but only after sustained pressure from shareholder activists, central banks and regulators. Market Forces has been a very important part of that pressure. A combination of strategic campaigning, research and lobbying, plus shareholder and financial activism has seen major market changes on carbon. Many of our major banks and insurance companies have been forced towards more transparency over carbon risks, and capital is certainly moving away from thermal toxic death rock. Over 60 financial and other corporates have dumped Adani. Listen to Pablo Brait and Rachel Deans from Market Forces as they outline strategic approaches to shifting financial corporates to becoming part of the solution. We can make our money work for good!
