Show Description:We love reporting to you on the business side of green. There's no better show or guest than this one--Richard Bookbinder from Terra Verde Capital Partners--giving us an amazing insight into the financial markets and their lightning shift into sustainable investing.
Mr. Bookbinder has a long history in shifting millions of dollars into building a cleaner, brighter future. The companies he has headed, including Terra Verde Capitol, have funded huge projects of building clean energy plants, new technology improvements in reducing the use of energy and the creation of waste, and the paramount global quest for clean water.
The global economy is clearly being reshaped, we think in a very good way, by financial leaders like Richard. Everyone can help such leaders make quality investments in sustainability by investing in their funds.
