Ethical investing is booming. But there are important questions potential investors should ask before jumping aboard. How do you know what companies your super invests in? Is it better to keep stock in problematic companies or divest from them? How can shareholders influence companies action? In this webinar based on our article in Renew 151, you’ll learn about how to use your investments for good.

Dan Gocher – Director of Climate and Environment, Australasian Centrefor Corporate Responsibility (ACCR)
The Australasian Centre for Corporate Responsibility (ACCR) is a research and shareholder advocacy organisation. Their focus is on corporate Australia — how listed companies, industry associations, and investors are managing climate, labour, human rights and governance issues.
ACCR’s climate program aims to accelerate Australia’s transition to a low carbon economy in line with the Paris Agreement. They engage with ASX-listed companies on their climate risk disclosure and the need to set emissions reduction targets consistent with the Paris Agreement, and also push for reviews by ASX-listed companies of their industry associations’ climate policy advocacy.
