I went along to this seminar yesterday, all about sustainable investing. It’s a long, boring story that explains how I got there, but suffice to say that my wife and I were invited along and we didn’t have to pay for it. If we did have to pay, we wouldn’t have gone; these things cost a fortune.

Anyway, we went along and it was a talk all about a new company that is setting up an investment platform that takes into account the sustainability of the businesses being invested in. All very noble stuff. It’s a company set up by Al Gore and his partner (Gore was the keynote speaker last night.)

Here’s the front of the invite:


Look closely at the names on the front.
