On June 6, 2019, KPMG and the Center for Houston’s Future will bring together senior energy executives, climate experts and other thought leaders for the Houston Low Carbon Energy Summit to start a dialogue on harnessing Houston’s industry expertise to address the transition to a low carbon energy future.
Center for Houston’s Future is proud to cosponsor the inaugural event of a climate-focused series organized by the Resilient Business Forum (a project of Global Affairs Associates, LLC).
“Impact Investing vs. ESG Investing: Do you know the difference?” is a panel discussion by practitioners in institutional investment, private equity, and philanthropic foundations. The purpose is to provide concrete examples of these three types of responsible investing by active practitioners in order to compare and contrast them.
This topic is inspired by growing interest—and common areas of confusion—about this field. Specifically, the event aims to spark informative discussions among participants regarding impact and ESG investing and create a deeper understanding of the role they play in shaping investment trends.
Kevin Pasha of J.P. Morgan (institutional investor perspective)
Jamila Yamani of Climate Impact Capital (private equity perspective)
Michael Menendez of the Southern Impact Investing Alliance (philanthropic perspective)
5:30 - 6:00 pm: Networking and Registration
6:00 - 7:00 pm: Panel Discussion and Q&A

We’re honored that noteworthy Texas authors Lawrence Wright and Mimi Swartz will join us for an after-dinner conversation.
Larry is winner of the Pulitzer Prize for The Looming Tower, a staff writer at The New Yorker (where he wrote about the triplets in the current documentary Three Identical Strangers), and author of the stage play Cleo, which premiered at the Alley last season. Earlier this year he published God Save Texas, an incisive and humorous exploration of his home state.
Mimi is senior executive editor at Texas Monthly and a regular contributor to the New York Times Op-Ed page. A two-time winner of the National Magazine Award, her just-published book is Ticker: The Quest to Create an Artificial Heart.
Larry and Mimi, friends and colleagues for many years, have been talking to each other about the joys and frustrations, challenges and thrills of covering the Lone Star State since they met at Texas Monthly. We look forward to joining them as they continue their lively discourse.
We are delighted to have Chevron as our Presenting Sponsor, and we deeply appreciate their continuing commitment to our region.
