Making the Grade: Corporations and the Paris Climate Accord

When you think of climate activism, Wall Street doesn’t immediately come to mind. But as investors are coming to realize, they do have a voice – and a vote – when it comes to corporate environmental action. Responsible investing is a concept that’s been around for many years, but it’s only recently that companies have begun to take notice. And who’s driving that change? Shareholders. Greg Dalton talks with three experts about the ways that market forces can turn the ship, inspiring awareness, transparency and in some cases, even change, in seemingly immovable corporations. Guests: Betty Cremmins, Director, Carbon Disclosure Project West Danielle Fugere, President & Chief Counsel, As You Sow John Streur, President & CEO, Calvert Research and Management Portions of this program were recorded at The Commonwealth Club in San Francisco.
