Philanthropy Impact




Join our CEO, John Pepin, has he chats with Joel Moreland, Philanthropist and Angel Investor; Colin Baines, Trustee of Possible and Investment Engagement Manager at Friends of Provident Foundation and our member Joanne Etherton, Climate Finance Lead, ClientEarth about the future of sustainable investments, asking how should professional advisors respond to the increasing demands for sustainable investing products.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had evident consequences for the environment, such as the reduction of air pollution, reported mitigation of global warming, and the decrease of flight emissions. However, it is hard to determine whether these consequences have had an impact, long-term, and if the reductions will create sustainable impact in the fight against climate change.  Or, has the diversion of funding to response and recovery affected the public and private investment towards renewable energy and sustainable investments?

In this episode we will explore what can the global response to this crisis teach us about climate change? Could this pandemic positively change our approach to this issue? What is the role of government, philanthropy, social, and impact investment?
