The Wall Street Green Summit (WSGS), the longest running environmental market event in the industry, today announced it will return to New York on March 14, 2016 for its 15th consecutive year. Focused on the convergence of renewable energy and finance, the Summit will provide executives with the latest developments and networking opportunities on global environmental financial markets.
The 15th Annual Wall Street Green Summit on March 14, 2016 goes in-depth on Cleantech Financing and Impact Investing. The Summit boasts an impressive lineup of over 25 speakers, including executives from Cornerstone Capital, Clean Energy Advisors, Encourage Capital and more.
“The Wall Street Green Summit continually sets the agenda on topics, speakers, insights and offers unparalleled networking with the leading experts in the environmental markets,“ said Peter Fusaro, Founder of the The Wall Street Green Summit.
Renewable energy investment dollars once again are on the upswing. Interest in cleantech financing has continued to attract significant global interest catalyzed by the recent Paris Climate Accord. As such, this year’s Summit will include in-depth analysis of new emerging financing models as well as discussions around where cleantech financing is headed.
Keynote speaker tracks include:
- Green Finance and Sustainability Today: Peter Fusaro, Global Change Associates
- Corporate Sustainability Keynote: Erika Karp, Cornerstone Capital
- Solar Finance Trends for 2016: Chris Warren, Clean Energy Advisors
- The Latest in Cleantech Investing: Cory Honeyman, GTM Research
A growing number of socially responsible investors seek to make investments that not only generate social and environmental value, but also financial returns. The emerging industry of impact investing has the potential to address major global environmental and social challenges. While impact investing is gaining momentum, there are still issues remaining – including scalability, the lack of appropriate capital across the risk/return spectrum and shortage of high-quality investment opportunities. This year's Impact investing track includes Clean Energy Advisors, Encourage Capital, World Wildlife Fund and the Closed Loop Fund who will share their insights on this new marketplace.
Launched in 2002 by Peter Fusaro, the Wall Street Green Summit covers cutting edge content, industry developments and features the practitioners and the leaders of tomorrow. The 15th annual WSGS promises to deliver stimulating dialogue around distributed generation, the smart grid, emissions mitigation, green funds, and renewable energy finance.
