Storm season is raging and infrastructure is failing, at times with dire consequences. In places, intelligent infrastructure provides secure, efficient, and economic energy and water services. This newsletter highlights a few of those innovative practices by Greenleaf’s clients as well as updates on board members and partners who retired this year to continue working on their passions.
John Andersen and Liz Hypes attended CleanMed 2017, a premier conference on environmental sustainability in the healthcare sector, in Minneapolis May 16th-18th with Greenleaf energy service partners, Intelligent Generation, GreenCity Power, G&W Electric, and Grumman/Butkus Associates.
Greenleaf Advisors’ President, John Andersen, was pleased to review for publication Environmental Consulting & Technology, Inc’s latest report Assessing the Market Size for Large-Scale Green Infrastructure in the Great Lakes Basin. The report, funded by the Great Lakes Protection fund, evaluates “enabling private financing or private delivery to expand the use of green infrastructure in the Great Lakes basin.”
The Greenleaf team brings together people to deliver sustainable solutions for the productive use of land, water, material and energy resources that sustain us all.
Greenleaf Associate, Liz Hypes, synthesized information gathered on green bond issuance and REITs for a commentary by S&P Global Ratings – Credit Research. First developed in 2007 by the World Bank and European Development Bank, a green bond is like a conventional bond except the debt financing issued must be used to finance or re-finance new or existing “green” activities or projects.
