To Andrew Heinztman we pose the question: How does our economic system need to change in a world that faces growing threats of climate change, peak oil, and resource scarcity?
Andrew Heintzman is the CEO and co-founder of InvestEco Capital, the first Canadian investment company to be exclusively focused on environmental sectors. Founded in 2002, InvestEco’s investments have ranged from companies that are developing renewable energy, water technologies, resource productivity technologies and efficient transportation solutions, to companies that promote health and sustainability in the food and agriculture sector. InvestEco is today principally focused on investments that promote health and sustainability in the North American food sector.
With the belief that entrepreneurialism will be critical to solving the world’s most pressing ecological problems, Andrew will share his perspectives on how strong financial returns can and should go hand in hand with innovative companies that are working to build a healthier planet and his vision of a new and prosperous way forward. The conversation with Andrew will be facilitated by Sustainability CoLab Executive Director Mike Morrice. Paul Bubelis is Executive Director of the Sustainability Network which hosts the series and he will MC. Green Economy Perspectives is part of the Sustainability Network’s Economic Literacy Project which offers training and outreach to ENGOs to help Canadians transition toward a green economy. The Economic Literacy Project is supported by a grant from the Ivey Foundation.
