Join Solar Oregon and 350PDX to learn more about fossil fuel divestment and explore alternatives funds that are building a more sustainable future.

The divestment movement is gaining momentum. The country of Ireland, New York City, and Oxford University are recent high-profile examples where leaders are stepping up and taking their money away from the biggest polluters on the planet. These large successes are powered by the choices individuals make to ensure that their investments are aligned with their values.

Special guests Dan Orzech from the Clean Power Cooperative  and Phil Richman from Ten Bridge Partners will lead a conversation about investing in local solar energy projects and ESG (environmental, social and governance) funds. They will be able to answer any questions you have about how responsible investing does and does not differ from investing in fossil fuels and how social responsibility impacts value.

Investment in local projects offers you a way to see the direct impact your money has on the community. Projects sponsored by the Clean Power Cooperative keeps money in the local economy.  Lowering the utility cost for cities, counties, schools and nonprofits frees up more money for these entities to fulfill their mission and serve the community.

On a larger scale, companies that are tackling issues around climate change head on are the best prepared to meet the challenges of the future. They are solving some of the most urgent problems we face today and have the potential to offer sustainable long-term growth, both for the planet and for individual investors.

Sustainable investment is an important to way to vote with your dollars and ensure that your money is going to work both for your future financial security and for the health of our environment. There are different ways to invest depending on your income. Join us to lean more about how you can maximize your impact.
