🐦 Some information to pick up
- “Comment le secteur financier peut-il contribuer à la transition climatique ?” Hint: we wouldn’t be here otherwise.
- “Une vaste majorité des Belges convaincue par les investissements durables, mais déplore le manque d’informations à ce sujet” >> www.citizenfund.coop, everything is crystal clear!
- “Finance verte : peut-on vraiment dépolluer son épargne ?” The answer is obvious: yes 🙂
If all this has made you want to work in sustainable finance, Lita.co is recruiting a Community Manager in Brussels.
If, even better, it made you want to contribute to the transition and clean up your savings, invest in the Citizenfund !
See you soon,
The Citizenfund team
