CLIMATE/GREEN FINANCE PROGRAM
Mission: The purpose of the Green Finance Program is to have a Working Group that identifies key trends, evaluates opportunities, collaborates with partners, and enhance innovative finance for sustainability (including circular economy) projects and companies for the mid-Atlantic region, as well as other regions through our Global Action Network. Our goals focus on collaboration with our strategic partners to facilitate projects in the mid-Atlantic region, leveraging both proven and new financing methods.
Program: This will consist of one main conference (January), as well as a monthly event, focusing on a different topic each month. We also will support other Working Groups within Leaders in Energy and our Strategic Partners in securing capital for projects and companies.
Roadmap: With strategic partnerships and collaboration, we will create a roadmap to achieve specific targets of securing capital for sustainable/renewable energy companies and projects for the mid-Atlantic region.
