On Wednesday, April 22, The Earth Institute and the Master of Science in Sustainability Management program will play host to sustainable investment leader Mindy S. Lubber, president of the Boston-based Ceres, for a special presentation entitled “Using the Tools of the System to Sustain the Planet.” This event is offered as part of the celebration of Earth Day and as an open session of Professor Claudia Dreifus’ class “Writing About Global Science for the International Media.”

Lubber directs Ceres Investor Network on Climate Risk, a group of 100 institutional investors managing nearly $10 trillion in assets focused on the business risks and opportunities of climate change. Under Lubber’s leadership, Ceres launched The 21st Century Corporation: The Ceres Roadmap for Sustainability, a guide highlighting environmental and social performance improvements companies and investors must achieve to succeed in the resource-constrained 21st century global economy. She also helps coordinate Ceres’ Business for Innovative Climate & Energy Policy, a coalition of more than 20 leading consumer brand companies advocating for strong climate and clean energy policies in the U.S. and abroad. Lubber was the founder, president and CEO of Green Century Capital Management, a family of environmentally responsible mutual funds. She also served as president of the National Environmental Law Center. Lubber is featured in a profile by Claudia Dreifus in the May issue of MORE Magazine.

The talk will be held on Wednesday, April 22 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm in Rennert Hall, Kraft Center.

Seats are limited. To reserve a place, RSVP here.
