No matter who your pension provider is, find out how you can make a difference at a free online event organised by Greening Steyning.

Alice Ross, deputy editor at the Financial Times, will be talking about her book Investing to Save the Planet on Thursday, April 1. Alice will be in conversation with Geoff Barnard, co-chairman of Greening Steyning, followed by a Q&A where you will get the chance to pose questions. Whether you have a pension, savings account or investments, making sure your money matters and helps secure the future is a small step that, according to Alice Ross, has big consequences.

Geoff said: “Investing responsibly is one of the most powerful ways that you can fight climate change. No longer a niche sector for rebel fund managers, conscious investing has the potential to raise huge sums of money for the companies and organisations on the front line fighting the climate crisis and make investors positive returns in the process.”

Al Gore, former Vice President of the United States, said of Alice’s book that it “presents a salient truth: every investor – no matter how large or small – has the power to help address our climate crisis and build a more sustainable world. Together, we can and must act now.”
