Climate change already affects large sectors of our economy, from infrastructure and property to public health and tourism. Even a company's bottom line may depend on how they plan and adapt to climate change now and in the future. While the risk is real and present, there are opportunities and creative ideas being pursued by forward-thinking businesses, individuals, and governments.  

Be sure to join us for an evening reception and discussion about the economics of climate change. Speakers will address the national, state, and local impacts of our changing climate and the benefits to jobs and the clean energy economy as we support a rapid energy transition. Hear personal stories and examples that highlight the costs and economic opportunities for a clean energy economy and a just transition.

Speakers include:

Chris Hansen, Colorado State Senator 
Bob Keefe, Executive Director of E2
Suzanne Tegen, Assistant Director of the Center for the New Energy Economy at Colorado State University
Trent Yang, Founding Partner & President, Galway Sustainable Capital

Drinks and hors d'oeuvres will be provided. 

A highlight of the event will be a book signing of Bob Keefe’s new book, Climatenomics: Washington, Wall Street, and the Economic Battle to Save our Planet.
