The folks at Clean Energy Canada are hosting a webinar on divestment as a vehicle for the global clean energy transition. It includes Justin Rockefeller, trustee with the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, which made global news by withdrawing investment from the fossil industry.
John D. Rockefeller was a key figure in another great energy transition, when the United States moved from whale oil to fossil oil in the 19th century. With depressed prices, failing projects, and a global divestment movement gaining speed, fossil fuels are shaping up to be the new whale oil.
Will divestment accelerate the global shift to clean energy?
On October 29 at 10AM, Clean Energy Canada welcomes two distinguished guests to a webinar to help wrestle with that question: Justin Rockefeller, trustee with the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and David Richardson, North America head of business development for Impax Asset Management.
