Environmental Strategist To Give Talk
ONEONTA—On Thursday, November 9, Paula DiPerna, a pioneer and authority on modern environmentalism and environmental finance, will discuss her book, “Pricing the Priceless: The Financial Transformation to Value the Planet, Solve the Climate Crisis, and Protect Our Most Precious Assets,” at 6:30 p.m. in Hartwick College’s Anderson Theatre.
The talk is free and open to the public. In the book, DiPerna looks at the need for people to put a price on things they hold dear and how one might accomplish this. Besides being an author and a frequent global public speaker, DiPerna is a strategic global environmental and philanthropic policy advisor. DiPerna currently serves as a special advisor to CDP, a not-for-profit charity that operates the world’s only integrated environmental disclosure system.
As a leader in the development of carbon markets, DiPerna served formerly as president of the international division of the Chicago Climate Exchange. DiPerna also served as president of the Joyce Foundation, a major U.S. philanthropy, and as a writer, co-producer, and vice president for international affairs for the Cousteau Society, whose principal was oceans pioneer Jacques-Yves Cousteau.
DiPerna’s book, “Pricing the Priceless: The Financial Transformation to Value the Planet, Solve the Climate Crisis, and Protect Our Most Precious Assets,” will be available for purchase at the event through the Green Toad Bookstore.
