Trillium Participating in White House Clean Energy Investment Summit
June 16, 2015: Trillium Asset Management is pleased to announce that our firm has been invited to participate in today’s White House Clean Energy Investment Summit.
Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled to deliver remarks highlighting more than $4 billion of independent commitments by major foundations, institutional investors, and other long-term investors to fund climate change solutions, including innovative technologies with breakthrough potential to reduce carbon pollution.
These commitments surpass the Administration’s initial Clean Energy Investment Initiative goal of catalyzing $2 billion, first announced earlier this year. In addition to Vice President Biden’s remarks, today’s Summit will feature senior administration officials from the White House, the Department of Energy, and the Department of Defense; and thought leaders from the Beeck Center for Social Impact and Innovation at Georgetown University, the Wallace Global Fund, and Wells Fargo among others.
The White House also will announce the creation of a Clean Energy Impact Investment Center, a sort of clearinghouse for information on clean energy investment and research housed at the Energy Department.
Earlier this year, President Obama issued an executive order that mandates a 40% cut in carbon dioxide emissions across government agencies.
