Divest-Invest: Philanthropy: innovative finance mechanisms for developing a new energy economy

Jenna Nicholas, Phoenix Global Impact and Wallace Global Fund

The objective of this session is to position foundation endowments to lead in filling demand and opportunity for clean trillion, unleashing innovation and experimentation, creating models and stimulating other sectors to move. This session will include a consideration of the carbon bubble, risks to stranded assets and the power of the growing climate movement framing ethical and financial risks. We will look at invest opportunities and how philanthropy can offer leadership. Barriers to scaling up as well as new financing mechanisms will also be considered. Case studies of creative philanthropic impact investment and how to build a community addressing equity and job creation will also be examined. We will discuss strategy for building a movement for endowments to lead on clean trillion, while retaining pressure to divest.
