Designing a Sustainable Investment Strategy (2019)
MIPC 2019 Case
A fictional public pension fund in Newfoundland and Labrador is under pressure to divest from its oil & gas holdings, while simultaneously satisfying the provincial government who relies on the local O&G industry, taxpayers who contribute funds to the plan, indigenous groups who define how their lands are used, a local O&G union who employs workers in this sector, and pensioners of this plan.
