On May 21, the Office of Financial Service Industries, along with Sustainable Manufacturing Initiative staff, organized a Green Finance Roundtable to discuss trends, strategic issues and the scope of the green finance industry with key public and private stakeholders. The two panel sessions held during the event focused both on trends in the “green” private equity, underwriting and insurance sectors as well as on the challenges U.S. manufacturers face in accessing green financing. Over 70 U.S. industry, NGO and government representatives were in attendance. The event was opened by Deputy Assistant Secretary Secundy, who provided an overview of ITA efforts to date in this field.
