The need for cities small and large to upgrade infrastructure and prepare for climate change disruptions is increasingly urgent, and yet finance and funding for these efforts face critical shortfalls. Increased impact investing by the philanthropic sector in support of sustainability and local government initiatives can help.
Join us for a discussion on current developments and new financial tools available to funders interested in impact investment and grantmaking to meet this public funding challenge.
- How to better align sustainability efforts and financial due diligence demands
- How to buffer communities against socio-economic inequities as cities undertake new projects
- Trends in impact investment that can support infrastructure resilience efforts overall, including enhanced focus on the social dimensions of environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns and the SDGs
- Tracy L. Austin, Executive Director, Mitsubishi Corporation Foundation for the Americas
- Eddie Bernhardt, SVP, SNW Investment Team Lead and Senior Portfolio Manager, Invesco
- Cecil Corbin-Mark, Director of Policy Initiatives, WE ACT
- Arturo Garcia-Costas, Program Officer, Local, National and International Environment, The New York Community Trust
