Join us on Wednesday, May 17th at 12pm for “The Science of Sustainable Investing” as we explore the evidence-driven approach to sustainable investing as it is practiced by Copper Leaf Financial Partner Dimensional Fund Advisors, a leading global investment firm. We will discuss how to combine environmental scientific research and a robust investment philosophy with a goal to deliver meaningful outcomes and a sound investment experience.

Specifically, we will cover:

·       What is ESG and how does it differ from Sustainable investing?

·       What do we know about the economics of climate change?

·       What does climate science and the evolution of greenhouse gas emissions research tell us about the impact on asset pricing and investment choices?

·       Does a growing demand for lower emissions impact expected returns?

·       What key metrics can be used to measure the effectiveness of an approach to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other factors?

·       What about performance?

For over 15 years Dimensional has worked with scientists and field experts to develop broadly diversified, cost-efficient solutions to help investors pursue a good investment experience while targeting measurable environmental goals and aligning their money with their values.
