The Great Lakes Impact Investment Platform, created by Great Lakes St. Lawrence Governors & Premiers, is a new structure built to encourage environmentally sustainable economic growth in the Great Lakes States, Ontario, and Québec. The Platform features various investment products intended to deliver demonstrable impact and revitalize the region’s waters, while also aimed to generate competitive, market-based financial returns.
The Great Lakes St. Lawrence region holds 20% of the world’s surface freshwater. If it were its own country, the region would be the world’s third largest economy, generating about $6 trillion annually.
The Great Lakes Impact Investment Platform has welcomed Empire State Greenhouses as a participating project.
