The Revolution in Environmental Finance


May 19, 2009


6-8 pm


Credit Suisse - One Madison Avenue Auditorium - (entrance is on Park Avenue between 23rd and 24th Streets)

Environmental due diligence is becoming a critical risk management tool for banks where it was once viewed as an optional ethical screen. Even as the banking sector continues to cut jobs and cut budgets, many environmental risk teams are expanding . Banks are looking toward a future where carbon is more widely regulated, supply chains are globalized and harder to monitor, and commodities flail between record highs and record lows. In this panel we hear how Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, and Citigroup are navigating this new risk landscape.
