Thu, February 21, 2019



Join us for a glass of wine and insights from leading practitioners in the field of impact investing. Climate change is a prominent ESG risk issue for investors, and great strides have been made in recent years to better assess and manage exposure to climate-related financial risks. But achieving the Sustainable Development Goals will mean moving from climate-proofing to climate action. In this session, we will hear from pioneering impact investors who are mobilizing and investing capital for sustainable energy investments in the Caribbean Basin, a region that is particularly vulnerable to climate change. Panelists will share insights on how these investments are generating strong returns in green infrastructure and technology; replacing diesel with solar, adding hydro capacity and creating high-quality jobs.
