IEN Webinar: Building a Just Transition - Investing in Infrastructure that Supports People and Planet

Date: May 30, 2019 1pm EDT

In this webinar we are joined by Dan Chu, Executive Director of the Sierra Club Foundation, and Greenbacker Capital’s Co-founder and CIO Charles Wheeler and Vice President Brandon Praznik.

They share an overview of the rapidly evolving field of renewable energy infrastructure investments. These strategies provide an excellent example of what a “just transition,” or movement to climate-friendly solutions in a way that addresses economic inequality and systemic injustice, can look like. Participants will learn how renewable energy infrastructure can fit within an endowment portfolio to achieve an institution’s goals for risk and return profile, environmental impact, and social justice impacts.
