Impact investing expert Dan Crisafulli believes social capital can play a critical role in facilitating scalable solutions for the environmental and social challenges we face today.
In this week's video interview, Crisafulli talks about how impact investing provides companies, private foundations and individuals from all sides of the political spectrum the means to align their values with their investments.
Since inception in the early 1990's, the founder of Potrero Impact Advisors, has provided insights on a broad range of impact investing opportunities to private banks and individuals, including guiding investments at Skoll Foundation.
While explaining the dynamics of impact investments, Crisafulli discusses what role the government can play in establishing policies that support growth in these sectors without subsidies, such as energy abatement. Combining reduced taxes for clean energy with carbon taxes for dirty energy can provide the impetus for radical change while stimulating the economy, he rallies.
And the ability of impact investing to provide a level playing field amid a polarized left and right partisan culture can be mighty encouraging much broader engagement.
This June, experts from around the world are gathering in New York City to facilitate the advancement of impact investment at an event hosted by the TBLI Group, a global organization focusing on impact investment for the past decade. Learn more and register now at http://www.tbliconference.com/.
