Introducing Innovation Champion: Essie Gee, Business Resiliency Strategist


There has never been more investor interest and capital available for ESG-focused homebuilding and community development. The Inflation Reduction Act is also set to infuse more than $50 billion into clean energy technologies and improvements that will create ripple effects in housing. We need to do more than understand the Environmental, Social and Governance aspects of ESG – we need to unlock revenue opportunities and build greater resiliency into our business all while continuing to do well by doing good.

  • Who’s setting the bar, how high, and what can we do to ensure goals are realistic, measurable, and marketable?
  • What new sources of capital, paths to market, and revenue opportunities exist, and how can we take advantage of them?
  • How can we go beyond ticking the boxes for an ESG report so that we’re taking incremental steps forward and creating meaningful change?
