Sustainable Investing
Yannick Prince Bidounga, Nicole Wilson
Socially responsible investments (SRI’s) were developed to increase the emphasis on social, economic, and environmental impact. However, SRI’s are now increasingly appealing as they exhibit better performance than their regular counterparts. Studies show that firms actively managing and planning for climate change achieve a higher return on investment than companies not planning for climate change.
This panel will offer guidance on how to best develop an investment portfolio, keeping both profits and sustainability in mind.

Sustainable Living
Carole Lalonde, Odile Bougain Nasri, Audrey Samson, Kinza Nasri, Krystel Panti
This session will dive deep into current and future sustainability trends pertaining to the basic human needs: food, clothing, and shelter. Lifestyle choices can have a considerable impact on the environment, and even the smallest decisions can make the difference.
Learn about how your decisions can have lasting positive impacts on both a personal and business level.
systems-v2
Sustainable Systems
Gabrielle Bouchard, Julie Reid
In this segment, take a step back and consider sustainability as a whole. What role do systemic frameworks play in contributing to the environment?
Policy has a large impact on the way infrastructure, agriculture, and businesses are shaped; sustainability can no longer be ignored in the process. It is time to start dismantling dated systems while implementing new ones that will reinvigorate our planet. 
innovation-v2
Sustainable Innovation
Benjamin Wareing
With sustainability comes innovation. Scientists, entrepreneurs, and visionaries have developed solutions to solve some of our planet’s problems. Whether it be the creation of fast cars or edible cutlery, innovation can be found in any industry.
Be the first to hear what today’s top minds have in store for our sustainable tomorrow. 
Professionnals from the Field
More than just entrepreneurs, they are actual pioneers in their industry and will definitely make a change for the better in Montreal. Make sure to follow our Facebook Event Page to see every update!
