Investing in Collaborative Innovation for Climate Justice

Jeannie Entin May 31, 2021

Groundbreaking work by environmental justice leaders has spurred governments to take bold action to address the disproportionate impacts of pollution and climate change. New legislation is mobilizing governments to invest in environmental justice through data-driven planning and interventions, with the potential to unlock new waves of economy-growing innovation.

Now it’s time for the private sector to step up too. Investors, foundations, corporations, and entrepreneurs all play critical roles in addressing the converging crises of climate change, public health, and widening economic disparities.

In this fireside chat:
* Consider how the private sector can go beyond reducing or even reducing carbon footprints to invest in collaborative innovation for climate justice.
* Hear how redesigning the way we do business can solve for public good, and economic growth at the same time.
* Discover the impacts of climate change mitigation and adaptation technologies designed for and with communities, and
* Learn about new business models that serve shareholders and stakeholders simultaneously.
