How Can We Efficiently Mobilize Impact Capital for Climate Action and Climate Justice?

Shift Conversations is a series of free live-streamed events. These panels, small group conversations, and workshops will feature cross-sector leaders having intimate, insightful conversations about the present and future of the social impact movement. Join them to learn from the wisdom and lived experience of some of the most highly respected thinkers and actors in the social and environmental impact ecosystem.

With floods, wildfires, and extreme weather events on the rise, we know that the climate crisis is here and the time for action is now. Entrepreneurs are scaling solutions and impact investors are mobilizing capital. Many of them in the impact space wonder if we should address the climate emergency by focusing on resilience and adaptation or on preventing additional warming. Both of these critically important approaches need to be funded, but what’s working? What’s not working? How can we make the greatest impact in the least amount of time?

In this Shift Conversation, they’re going to look at some of the most impactful ways that investors are allocating capital to build resiliency and adapt to solve the challenges we face from their changing climate today while also directing capital towards the prevention of additional warming tomorrow.

Nicole Davis, a Partner and Senior Wealth Manager at Veris Wealth Partners, will lead this conversation with a variety of actors in the impact space to uncover some of the most promising approaches to stop warming, reduce CO2, and bring about a just and equitable transformation of their global economy so we can transition away from fossil fuels while building resilience in the frontline communities that are already facing the worst impacts of climate change.
