Humphreys speaks about fossil-fuel divestment and sustainable endowment management at the New England Campus Sustainability Forum
Josh Humphreys, president and senior fellow at Croatan Institute, led a panel on "Managing Climate Risks Relative to Campus Investments" at the New England Sustainability Forum in Boston on September 20, 2013. The session also included Mark Orlowski from the Sustainable Endowments Institute and Noelle Laing from Cambridge Associates. The panelists discussed the latest developments from the movement for fossil-fuel divestment and opportunities that have emerged for making climate-related investments across asset classes found in diversified endowment portfolios and mitigating portfolio risks associated with the “carbon bubble.”
The Sustainability Forum focused this year on impacts of and solutions to climate change on New England campuses. It was organized by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), Clean Air-Cool Planet, GreenerU, the New England Board of Higher Education, the Northeast Campus Sustainability Consortium, Second Nature, and the Colleges of the Fenway, which hosted the event.
