Come to Tucson and join in creating the largest public/private partnership in the country’s history.
American business is poised to launch a massive Retooling America campaign, with at least $500 billion of new capital investment in energy efficiency retrofits of existing buildings, plants and operations, 100% privately financed, producing 5 million jobs and reducing CO2 in the process. State governments have passed legislation that enables City and County governments covering 2/3 of the country’s population to offer the financing structure that can tap that $500 billion of private investment in the clean economy.
Who and Why
In Tucson on October 18th, the US BCSD, Ygrene Energy Fund, Barclays Capital, Lockheed Martin, the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Environmental Defense Fund are hosting a conference bringing together leading American corporations and leading American cities and counties for the purpose of creating privately financed public/private partnerships focused on building the clean economy all across the country.
