About the Forum

On the heels of two previous sold-out events, Infocast’s Green Building Finance & Investment Forum again convenes the most proactive investors and practitioners--those who have been anticipating the forces of change in the real estate market, designing cohesive strategies, and leveraging those forces for proven profit.

The real estate market faces a transformational juncture where “crisis equals opportunity.” The credit debacle, technology changes, spiraling energy costs, and a tidal wave of “green” laws and policy trends may throw the unprepared off-balance, but lift the well-prepared to new heights. Case in point: The US Green Building Council is clocking new requests for LEED certification at $464 million dollars in total project value, every single business day. In this time of change, what once seemed fringe is now front and center. Investors, developers, portfolio and building owners and managers can no longer afford to sit on the sidelines. Tomorrow’s profits will be in the green building sector.

Returning to San Francisco, the third Forum provides attendees an opportunity to be in the front seat as new tools and strategies in lending, valuation and risk assessment are invented and deployed. Topics include:

  • Is green real estate holding value against the decline/slowdown in “brown” real estate?
  • How are green and Triple Bottom Line investing addressing the opportunities and hazards in Obama’s policy agenda?
  • How to think about a coming era of “systemic risk” from climate change and energy price volatility
  • Exploring the links between the subprime crisis, sprawl, building design and real estate valuations and lending practices
  • Building “smart growth” and reducing eco-footprints into profits via new lending, investment and valuation tools

In addition, two Pre-Forum Workshops will cover the latest trends in Designing, Developing and Financing “Bright Green” Communities and Financing Efficiency Retrofits. Join the leaders, movers and shakers in San Francisco to understand where commercial real estate development is heading and how it will impact your bottom line.
