      Scientists tell us we need to flatten our emissions curve and actively decarbonize our economies by 2030 to avoid the most severe effects of climate change. This will require broad changes in the way we produce and consume energy. As leaders in our communities, how can we ignite this change and ensure that it is a “just transition” for all people - not just a few? What lessons and reverberations from COVID-19 will affect our response to climate?

      New technologies are essential for solving the climate crisis in the 21st century. Most pathways to averting climate change depend, at some level, on breakthroughs in areas such as energy, transportation, and carbon removal. Without innovation in these areas, addressing climate change will be far more difficult, if not impossible.

      Many investors are keen to help address the climate crisis, and they can have a crucial role to play in supporting nascent climate technologies. Please join for a lively online discussion on the unique challenges and opportunities of investing in nascent technologies that could critically reduce emissions.

      The conversation will explore the current state of affairs for climate technology investing, including the potential implications of COVID-19.

      This event is co-sponsored by Yale Center for Business and the Environment (CBEY), Young Professionals in Energy NYC, Accelerate Yale. Yale Blue Green, Stanford Startups, Stanford New York Alumni, and the Tsai Center for Innovative Thinking at Yale (Tsai CITY).
