The stories collected in this ebook showcase ways that underserved communities can access clean-energy capital and infrastructure; and how banks themselves can successfully finance projects that reimagine cities as places of environmental justice.
Given the legislative battle over the Biden Administration’s plans to revamp infrastructure and combat climate change, it feels like the money grab has already begun. How can we ensure that funds are spent in ways both sustainable and just? We hope Next City’s reporting on the subject contributes to normalizing the conversation around how investing in clean-energy and environmental justice is good business.
This ebook, and the stories within it, was made possible through the support of the Solutions Journalism Network’s Business & Sustainability Initiative. Our work was guided and informed by the mentorship of SJN’s Fara Warner. Our deepest thanks to our Next City authors, whose solutions reporting, in this ebook and others, keep us hopeful that a more sustainable and equitable future is on the horizon for us all.
Finally, and always, a special thank you to the Next City donors who make our ebook program possible. As a nonprofit newsroom, we depend on reader contributions to fund not only our journalism, but our ebooks, special issues, events and webinar programming. When we can report on what works in one city, other cities inevitably follow. To tell these stories, we need your support.
