Practical workshop: Responsible investment
Would you agree to financially support a company whose income is hidden in tax paradis, tax-sheltered? Or who would hire young children to limit their spending? Or whose toxic spills would kill all life around? Yet this is what happens in a large proportion ofinvestments, often without the knowledge of their owners. In rapid growth, responsible investment has become one of the great civic causes in our society.
Defending people and the planet while enjoying a strong portfolio is now a reality. This workshop, taught by a facilitator who is not specialized in finance but strongly socially engaged, will awaken you to the real impacts of your portfolio: encouraging good organizations and abandoning bad ones.
As a recognized agent of social change, Canadian facilitator Jean Provencher will bring his decades-long expertise and social commitment to participants.
