    I need to sit down with my financial advisor and discuss how I can shift my investment portfolio to be considerate of impact investing.

    While this the assessment tool is informative, it's unfortunate that there are a few large assumptions, such as that vehicle use is purely gas-based, and having to guess which state has the most similar energy profile to Quebec. I went with Vermont... which is not a representative choice, I believe. All the same, it was informative to be able...
