Minneapolis, MN – North Sky Capital’s Andrew Harris recently spoke at the November 16-17 Infrastructure Investor New York Forum on a panel that explored the challenges of renewable energy transition.
Andrew and the group of invited panelists discussed how impact investors are taking a holistic approach and scrutinizing secondary effects of their investment decisions. For example, installing more solar power is generally a good thing but is certainly less so if those solar panels are sourced from manufacturers that use slave labor to keep production costs down. Today, investors are rejecting situations where they would otherwise create a primary benefit while causing some significant secondary harm.
A recap of the panel discussion was published in an Infrastructure Investor article, which is available here.
