Notre Dame Climate Investing Conference, led by Mendoza College of Business, University of Notre Dame, will bring together researchers, business leaders, investors and environmentalists to explore role and potential impact of investing in regard to climate change. The conference, “Climate Investing: Transition to a Low-Carbon World,” will take place Sept. 29-30 in McKenna Hall on the University of Notre Dame campus.
“This conference is occurring at a most opportune moment,” said Leo Burke, the director of the Global Commons Initiative at Mendoza College of Business, who is leading the conference. “In June, the Vatican published Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’, which speaks to the moral issues involved. In December, the nations of the world will gather in Paris to address the issue of binding agreements on carbon emissions. We’re at the very beginning of a major shift in the global energy system. This has significant implications for every sector of society — including business.”
The event is open to the public. Attendees can register through the conference website at climateinvesting.nd.edu.
Climate Investing Conference planning team has launched Mobile App for the conference to minimize the carbon footprint of the event. This includes minimizing the use of printed material.
