Dr. Goodman recently moderated a webinar titled “The Business of Resilience: Climate and Energy” for the National Council for Science and the Environment on alternative and renewable energy strategies and climate resilience being pursued by some of the firms profiled in her new book, Adapting to Change: The Business of Climate Resilience. She was joined by panelists Bruce Schlein, Director of Alternative Energy Finance at Citi, and Jay Bruns, former Vice President of Public Policy at The Hartford. Some of the topics covered include innovative energy financing programs, new products and services offered by Citi and The Hartford, and how renewable energy has been incorporated into their businesses.
Thank you so much to Bruce Schlein of Citi, Jay Bruns of The Hartford, and Lou Ferretti of IBM and everyone who joined us at the Adapting to Change book launch panel. The panel was hosted by the Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity at Baruch College and the Sustainability Practice Network on September 23rd as a part of Climate Week 2016. Here are some photos from the event.
