Dress Code

There is no set dress code for the workshop though we recommend business casual attire throughout.


There is no conference fee to attend the workshop. Administrative costs (e.g., catering, printing, etc.) will be covered by Credit Suisse. Travel and hotel expenses need to be borne by the participants.


The Steering Committee would like to thank the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation for hosting the dinner on January 21, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation for providing a grant to produce a post-workshop volume, and the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco for hosting the space.


For January 21 and 22, we have blocked rooms and negotiated a special group rate at the Le Meridien (333 Battery Street), which is in the vicinity of our meeting venue. The preferred room rate per night is USD 229 plus taxes (incl. complimentary WIFI).


If you would like to reserve a room with the special rate, please call the hotel directly at (866) 837-4184 by December 30 (note: deadline extension) the latest. The group block name is "Conservation Finance Workshop". 


The workshop will take place at


The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, 101 Market Street


You need to bring your photo ID with you, and you will have to go through a metal detector screening. The registration process will take about 10 minutes. Once completed, you will be escorted by staff to our meeting room.
