Investing in a Clean Energy Economy

Risky Business Project report launch

Thursday, December 8 | 4:00-6:00 pm
Boston University School of Law | Barrister's Hall
765 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215

Dan Lashof, Chief Operating Officer of NextGen Climate America, will assess the economic and technical feasibility of reducing climate risks by transitioning towards an economy powered by clean energy in the near- to medium-term future.
The best estimates suggest that we need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050.  To do so will mean transforming the way we produce and use energy.  From Risk to Return examines the technological and economic feasibility using commercial or near-commercial technology and asks:
  • Is a transition to an economy that produces less carbon affordable?
  • What will it mean to investors and consumers?
  • How can American business lead us towards an economy with lower climate risks?
Lashof will explore these questions and more as he examines the major business opportunities and challenges relating to technology, infrastructure and economy during an energy transformation.  Learn more and RSVP
