This post features Blueprint’s latest CTV interview with Amanda Blitz, which aired Sunday, March 15.

With the Canadian economy in flux and oil prices trading at a six-year low, Loblaw’s $1.2 billion investment in refurbishment and expansion of its grocery stores might seem surprising. According to Blueprint, this move by Loblaw’s is consistent with their mandate of continuous innovation. It is also indicative of the confidence one of Canada’s biggest retailers has in the future of the economy.

Rapper Snoop Dogg, historically known for his connection with drugs, gangs and violence, has recently joined a growing trend called #Unloading, which promotes ethical investing. Talk is great but action is what really matters. Blueprint discusses how the Rockefeller Foundation’s shift of $50 billion out of fossil fuels and into sustainable energy is a transformative moment in the ethical investing movement.
