Financing a Sustainable Future

"The sustainability revolution, coupled with the technology revolution, will be the most significant event in economic history." - David Blood

How can we harness capitalism for good? Can new investment strategies prioritize planet and yield higher returns? And how can we best finance a net zero economy?

The University of Michigan's Erb Institute is honored to welcome leaders across sectors to dig into financing change. Their keynote will be delivered by David Blood, co-founder and Senior Partner of Generation Investment Management. Since its founding in 2004, Generation has played an integral role in the development of sustainable investing and in demonstrating the long-term commercial and societal benefits of this approach.

Following his keynote, David Blood will be joined on stage by a set of panelists who bring additional real-world experience leveraging a market economy to create sustainable change. Joining on stage will be:

  • Liesl Clark, Director, Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy
  • Michael Dorsey, Partner, IberSun Solar & Member, Club of Rome
  • Jennifer Haverkamp, Graham Family Director
  • Chad Spitler, Founder and CEO, Third Economy

Join them for a FREE evening exploring new ways to mobilize capital for large-scale sustainability-focused transformations! RSVP here to let us know you're going, and check out the event's website to RSVP there and get more details.

The Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise at University of Michigan is a partnership between the Ross School of Business and the School for Environment and Sustainability (SEAS).
