Do you know what your investments are doing? If you are like most of us, probably not. We all remember the subprime mortgage crisis and the housing bubble. Well, a similar situation is brewing in the fossil fuel industry and it’s called the Carbon Bubble.
Dale Wannen, President of Sustainvest Asset Management, will be here to discuss how our investment dollars are supporting companies that don’t align with our values and what steps can be taken to rid oneself of these holdings and feel better about socking away those hard earned dollars. We’ll cover:
- Why you should pay attention to how your IRA and 401k are invested.
- The dangers of having your money invested in fossil fuels – both financial and environmental.
- Step-by-step, how to divest your money from fossil fuels
IT’S EASIER THAN YOU THINK – and once it is done, you can sleep better at night knowing you are protecting yourself and the planet! 🙂
