Cross Sector Collaboration to Accelerate Sustainable Infrastructure

Event Date: September 21, 2020

Event Time: 3:00 pm

Event Location: Online

The global infrastructure funding gap, previously projected to reach $15 trillion by 2040, is poised to grow exponentially due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Guggenheim Sustainability Quotient is a research-driven framework for transitioning sustainable infrastructure into an institutional asset class, developed in partnership with the world’s foremost academic institutions (Stanford University, Tufts’ Fletcher School), research and advocacy organizations (WWF, GIB), and infrastructure practitioners (CCR, KPMG, Mott MacDonald) to enable institutional investors to commit the capital needed to meet global infrastructure needs. Guggenheim and its partners have performed extensive research on best practices to foster the acceleration of sustainable infrastructure and do so in a way that addresses many of the social, economic, and environmental issues that are growing more acute in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. In partnership with Goal 17 Partners, this session will explore the key insights from the research developed by this team of experts, while presenting a path forward to deploy trillions of dollars in assets held by institutional investors to fund sustainable infrastructure projects around the world.
