Announcing the Partnership Fund Urban Resiliency Advisory Board

New York City and state have set ambitious goals toward a net-zero, waste-free future. To ensure New York City maintains its competitive edge while shifting toward more sustainable infrastructure, the Partnership Fund is thrilled to announce a newly created Urban Resiliency Advisory Board.

With a particular focus on leveraging our capital to bolster resiliency in low-income neighborhoods, we have selected leading sustainability experts — that span key sectors, including energy, financial services, real estate and venture capital — to help us invest in innovative solutions that will power an equitable transition to clean energy and sustainable practices across industries while diversifying and strengthening an emerging green economy.

This new advisory board will lend its time and expertise and provide guidance on how the Fund can best deploy capital to build climate resiliency in underserved neighborhoods, reduce carbon emissions, create green jobs across the five boroughs, and help advance New York’s sustainability goals.
