Our most promising proposal focuses on a type of Green Bond, called the Clean Asset Bond (CAB), as well as the Clean Asset Loan (CAL), collectively referred to as Clean Asset Bonds and Loans (CABLs). Please read more about these initial ideas on the Policy Briefs section. We continue to research the applicability of this concept, and will post updates on our concept when available.
We are encouraged by the strong interest in free market solutions to meeting current energy needs, and we shall be discussing our ideas and research at a variety of events in 2019, including with a Policy Briefing and Reception co-chaired by Andy Sabin and Trammell S. Crow, and co-hosted with ClearPath and CRES Forum on Sept. 23, 2019.
The Clean Capitalist Coalition was formally launched on Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2018 in Washington, DC, as well as on Sept. 27, 2018 in New York City during the annual Clean Capitalist Leadership Council meeting. The Coalition brings together a wide array of policy groups and other experts to work more effectively in Washington.

This policy research has benefitted from input from more than 300 experts, including faculty and researchers at Columbia University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research (MIT CEEPR), the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE), American Renewable Energy Institute (AREI), The Nature Conservancy (TNC), Arizona State University LightWorks, the One Step In Foundation, and R Street Institute, among many others. With their valuable expertise and insight, together we have explored several important sectors of the economy for potential application of Clean Tax Cuts or Clean Assets Bonds, including transportation, oil and gas, real estate, clean tech, agriculture and land use, and finance.
