What is climate safe lending? How can a CDFI know if its lending is helping address the climate crisis? Join us to learn climate safe lending strategies for CDFIs, why carbon accounting makes sense, and how the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials has made carbon accounting accessible. Jake Ide will explain why Vermont Community Loan Fund decided to analyze the carbon impact of their portfolio, what they discovered, and details of the process. Participants will learn how to get started determining their own organization’s carbon footprint and adopting climate safe lending strategies.
