25th Anniversary TBLI CONFERENCE-Celebrating with Friends

For those of you who weren’t able to attend the 25th Anniversary of TBLI CONFERENCE, May 29-30, 2014, here is a film capturing some of the highlights. The full version of the plenary presentations will be available on our website, shortly.

It was a spectacular event. Everyone contributed to the success of TBLI CONFERENCE. It is so inspiring to bring together the ESG & Impact Investing thought leaders and great humanitarians and experience the passion and generosity of everyone. We were overwhelmed by the number of people who came up and asked how they could help TBLI CONFERENCE.

I particularly want to thank our team, Iris, Stephanie, Stephen, Danielle, Libby, and Niels. In addition, all the staff of Credit Suisse, the volunteers, the TBLI Ambassadors, attendees, speakers, moderators and sponsors. You all made TBLI a great success and a joy. Thank you.

Hope you can join us at the other events this year. 

TBLI CONFERENCE™ Series 2014-Building A Global Community Of ESG And Impact Investors

NORDIC (10-11 Sept) – EUROPE (28-29 Oct) – @HULT Boston (17 Nov)

We received great testimonials like this one.

The TBLI CONFERENCE USA 2014 in New York City was inspiring, empowering, and brought people from many sectors together to discuss important sustainability issues and solutions that can only transpire through “collective impact”. Furthermore, discussions focused on developing solutions to emerging ESG challenges. As opposed to other sustainability conferences, TBLI CONFERENCE attendees interacted and engaged at all levels, from CEOs to students and volunteers – everyone was important and included in the discussion.The workshops instigated thought provoking ideas and helped cultivate new connections bringing people with different skill sets together to work on projects. These workshops were not just lectures where CEO’s talked at you but they  were excited to share progress with everyone and welcomed constructive criticism, partnerships, and suggestions as discussions were free flowing as a general curiosity and openness pervaded the atmosphere. The TBLI Conference truly put the “social engagement” in triple bottom line.

Fuel Free Energy

It still amazes me with all the proof about the vast opportunity that “fuel free” (renewable energy) offers, that we are still having to fight for the obvious. Lobbyists are working overtime to convince policy makers that fossil fuels still need 10 x more subsidies that renewable energy. Here are three articles providing some facts. Now the trick is transforming proof to belief.
