Renewable Solutions: Offshore Wind and a Just Transition
Please join Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility’s investor network for a webinar focusing on offshore wind as a powerful engine for a just transition to net-zero emissions by mid-century.
Speakers will give an overview of the role offshore wind can play in creating a just transition and the policies needed to ensure racial equity, environmental justice, and labor-determined job standards:
- Christina Herman, Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility
- Susannah Hatch, Environmental League of Massachusetts
- Hillary Bright, BlueGreen Alliance
- Dr. Tamika Jacques, Massachusetts Clean Energy Center
- John Carlson, Ceres
Discussion will center around questions investors can use in company engagements with utilities planning offshore wind investments and opportunities for investors to support regional initiatives and state-level policy in Northeastern U.S. states.
The webinar will cite initiatives underway in the Northeast U.S. and specific policies needed to ensure a rapid, just development of offshore wind power, but applies to offshore wind development and just transition initiatives broadly.
