The objective of the meeting was to build on last year’s focus on actual projects under the rubric of "investable, scalable, and repeatable" and to further expose mainstream investors to the field of conservation finance.
This event is a follow-on to a smaller workshop held at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco in January 2014 and a first global investor conference held at Credit Suisse’s office in New York in January 2015, where we sharpened the focus on actual projects and mainstream investment propositions.
