Investment Strategies to Address Climate Change in California
In California, heatwaves are becoming more common, snow is melting earlier in spring, and in the southern region, less rain is falling. The state's climate is changing drastically. These changes are likely to further decrease the supply of water, increase the risk of wildfires, and threaten coastal development and ecosystems, impacting the health, livelihoods, and futures of residents across the state. It will require substantive changes to protect what we have today and preserve our natural resources for future generations.
Join Philanthropy California for a session on the current state of investing to mitigate climate change and build statewide climate resiliency. We'll highlight impact investing strategies and opportunities in wildfire and drought mitigation, prioritizing approaches that serve people who are disproportionately experiencing the impacts of climate change. Curious about how climate change impacts are putting all investment types at risk and why impact investments need to take climate resilience into account? This session is for you.
About This Series
This session is the third in a four-part Philanthropy California learning series for institutional and individual impact investors across California, sponsored by and partnering with RBC Global Asset Management. Additionally, the Philanthropy California Investment Collaborative is a statewide, place-based impact investing initiative that aims to bring together foundations, public funds, individual investors, and, eventually, corporations to align their existing investment portfolios with grants and loans that support affordable housing, healthcare, small business, and environmental justice in targeted communities.
