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.
New York, NY (PRWEB) February 27, 2013
Wall Street Green Summit (WSGS), the longest running environmental market event in the industry, today announced it will return to New York on March 18th for its twelfth 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.
While renewable energy investment dollars may have fallen in recent years, interest in cleantech financing has continued to attract significant global interest. As such, this year’s summit will include in-depth analysis of new emerging financing models – including MLPs and REITS – as well as discussions around where cleantech financing is headed. Keynote tracks include:
- Green Finance and Sustainability Today: Peter Fusaro, Global Change Associates
- The Development of Green Markets: Matt Arnold, JP Morgan Chase
- The Latest in Cleantech Investing: Tucker Twitmeyer, Enertech Capital
As an ever-growing number of investors seek to make investments that generate both social and environmental value as wall as a financial return, the emerging industry of impact investing has the potential to address major global 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. Impact investing tracks include:
- Impact Investing 101: Arrun Kapoor, SJF Ventures
- Sustainability as an Investment Theme: Anric Blatt, Earth, Wind & Fire Fund
- The B Corps Joins Capital Raising: Dirk Samspelle, B Revolution Capital
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 12th annual WSGS promises to deliver stimulating dialogue around building design, green transportation, the smart grid, emissions mitigation, green funds, and renewable energy.
