Episode 27: The Future of Green Investing with Greenbacker Capital

How are dreams transformed into reality that then construct our future? The simple answer? Money. The longer answer? By intelligent people investing into products and services that then have a fighting chance of becoming mainstream. An industry that highlights this beautifully is renewable energy and sustainable infrastructure. Still new, its future is not one that can be methodically planned out, but if there's one company that is keeping its pulse on its trajectory, it's Greenbacker Capital. With us this week is Ben Baker, Managing Director at Greenbacker, and the go-to guy for learning about the renewable energy industry. Greenbacker brings sustainable energy and infrastructure investment opportunities to market by investing in a portfolio of ventures. Ben joins us to discuss everything from what they look for in a company, the impact of Covid-19, and what to expect in the future of green investing.
