CERES 2020: Reimagining Capitalism in a World on Fire & Scaling Up Action to Tackle the Climate Crisis

March 25 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This text is taken from CERES.


“Free market capitalism is one of humanity’s greatest inventions and the greatest source of prosperity the world has ever seen. But this success has been costly. Capitalism is on the verge of destroying the planet and destabilizing society as wealth rushes to the top. The time for action is running short.

In this session, participants will:

  • Examine the worldview that the only purpose of business is to make money and maximize shareholder value
  • Reimagine capitalism so that it is not only an engine of prosperity but also a system that is in harmony with environmental realities, striving for social justice and the demands of truly democratic institutions
  • Explore a pragmatic foundation for navigating a world faced with an unprecedented challenge, but also with extraordinary opportunity for those who can get it right

In the second part of this session, Rebecca Henderson will speak with Helen Wildsmith, Stewardship Director for Climate Change at CCLA Investment Management about how to mobilize large investors to engage with companies on climate change, key priorities for investors going forward and what actions investors can take now.”
