Title: Green Banks: Catalyzing an Equitable Transition | NYC Climate Week Event
Date: 19 September 2023
Time: 2:00-4:30 EST
Location: Zoom/Lexington Avenue and E 52nd Street
Description: The $27 Billion Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund has brought new attention to the role that green banks – local, specialized financial institutions with a green investment mandate – can play in scaling climate investments. To achieve deep decarbonization through an equitable transition, these investments will need to benefit traditionally underserved communities and leverage larger sums of private investment.
Join us to learn how the green bank model can help crowd in additional investment in underserved communities. Green bank members and practitioners will discuss how green banks can partner with communities, impact investors and other financial institutions to scale an equitable green transition as well as lessons learned from programs that targeted underinvested communities.
Speakers include representatives from Connecticut Green Bank, DC Green Bank, Impact Assets, Inclusive Prosperity Capital, New York Green Bank, and Rhode Island Infrastructure Bank.
