Making Change: Finding Funding for Climate Action

10:45 AM - 12:15 PM

U.S. municipalities have numerous infrastructure, climate mitigation, and adaptation investment needs. It is estimated that the U.S. must invest $3.6 trillion in basic infrastructure by 2020, including transportation systems, waterways, and the power sector. How can U.S. cities position themselves to lead the effort to fund projects to reduce energy use and promote green infrastructure? Furthermore, many investors and bond rating agencies are beginning to incorporate a broader set of environmental, social, and governance criteria including climate change management into the investment process. What are the implications for cities if more than traditional economic and socioeconomic information is used to assess creditworthiness? Learn how to communicate your top priority projects to give investors insight into bankable deals in climate action and sustainability. This workshop is being organized in partnership with the Carbon Disclosure Project.
