Decarbonizing Bank Lending

Confluence Philanthropy’s mission is to transform the practice of investing by aligning capital with our community’s values of sustainability, equity, and justice. We support and catalyze a membership network of private, public and community foundations; family offices; individual donors; and their values-aligned investment advisors representing more than $70B in philanthropic assets under management, and over $3.5T in managed capital.

In this session we will discuss how we can harness the interest and influence of member investors and advisors to influence their banks to stop lending to fossil fuel companies. Increased bank lending for fossil fuel companies is a major factor in pushing us closer to a climate crisis. It's time to decarbonize bank lending.

This event is part of the Transport and Infrastructure, Finance, Investment and Jobs, and Climate Impacts and Adaptation programs.
