Investing in Climate Justice
Updated: May 1
There’s an opportunity to invest in a just transition toward a sustainable future and a clean energy economy that promotes community resilience. In this Conversation, environmental justice leaders and investors discuss how climate solutions investments can have a social impact multiplier effect, and how important it is for advances toward a clean energy economy not to leave frontline communities behind, whether they be in coal country, like rural Appalachia, or low-resource urban communities of color. This focus on the social dimension of climate solutions investing and explicitly in climate justice can help mitigate some of the economic inequalities exacerbated by the pandemic and the climate crisis. As the current administration sets out an ambitious infrastructure plan to address climate change and address economic inequality, investors and activists who have been investing in these types of projects for years share the best ways to maximize opportunities to increase that impact.
