National Building Museum

Online Program: Investing in our Future

Thursday, June 10, 2021
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

HA Investing in the Future GraphicRecent years have seen the rise of sustainable investing along with powerful calls for sweeping government action to address climate change. How can green investment contribute to the creation of a more sustainable, equitable, and resilient future? What role can programs like the proposed Green New Deal play in channeling that investment and accelerating the transition to a net zero economy? Audrey Choi, Chief Sustainability Officer, Morgan Stanley, Peggy DaSilva, Head of Asset Management, Allianz Real Estate, James Rhee, founder and CEO, FirePine Group, and Willy Walker, chairman and chief executive officer, Walker & Dunlop, will consider the opportunities and challenges of green investing and the necessity of government action to spur the creation of green infrastructure. The program is facilitated by Kristopher Takács, AIA, director, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM).

UPDATE: This program is available to watch on the Museum website.

This program is presented as a part of NBM Climate Action as part of the Museum’s 2021 Honor Award. Over the weeks preceding the National Building Museum’s virtual Honor Award celebration on June 17, the Museum and the award honoree - Skidmore, Owings & Merrill - will explore the role that architecture and the building industry must play in addressing the global climate crisis through a series of thought-provoking programs.
