Religious investors call for price on carbon

In April 2015, SHARE supported fifty-three religious institutional investors with combined assets of more than $2 billion to release a letter to federal Finance Minister Joe Oliver. The letter asked that the Government of Canada establish mechanisms to set a clear, reliable and effective price for carbon emissions with the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and limiting catastrophic climate change.

Many faith-based institutions are increasingly looking to integrate a responsible investment approach into their investment management practices, that takes into consideration environmental, social and governance issues. SHARE is a Canadian leader in offering responsible investment services, education and research for religious investors.
