Learn how the Nature Conservancy and other nonprofits are using impact investment to prompt social and environmental change.

Impact investing is an exciting approach that seeks to attract new resources for critical conservation work with the intention to generate measurable environmental and social impact alongside a financial return.

For example, the Conservancy’s NatureVest has invested in a program in Kenya called Livestock to Markets, which has created a unique and powerful linkage between improved livelihoods for the pastoralists in Northern Kenya and an expanded, healthy habitat for the wildlife that live in the region. And here in Massachusetts, investors are working to keep the last shellfish hatchery in the state open for business, and providing oysters to environmental restoration projects that keep our waters clean.

Join us for a networking reception, followed by 60 minutes of moderated discussion among our knowledgeable panelists and a brief audience Q&A:
