Last month, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, a private foundation with an endowment of approximately USD$860 million, announced it has begun phasing out fossil-fuel-related positions from its investment portfolio, starting with coal and oil sands. Justin Rockefeller will join us to speak about what prompted the decision, some of the factors considered, and challenges involved.

Recently, Impax Asset Management sought the answer to a provocative question: What would happen if all fossil stocks were removed from a global benchmark investment index? David Richardson, will share his team’s surprising findings and outline his firm’s recommendations for those considering a divestment strategy.
