Product Description

Review

"The book is written in a very clear way with many examples relating to everyday life experience that simplifies the explanation of financial products. The 23 principles offer a way to look at finance for environmental goods which is novel and innovative. It's important to note that only a small number are relevant solely to environmental finance - the vast majority relate to finance generally. Unfortunately governments do seem to have forgotten finance principles when they apply finance to the environmental sector (and quite often any sector!)."
––Dr Aled Jones, Director, Global Sustainability Institute, United Kingdom

"Mike Curley has provided us with a remarkably erudite, yet accessible, guide to financing the next great wave of environmental improvements. It is likely to become an indispensable source for generating new ideas to give us the biggest environmental bang for our buck."
––G. Tracy Mehan, III, Former Assistant Administrator for Water, US EPA

"Energy Policy cannot be made in a vacuum. Neither can environmental policy. Successful policies must consider cost and how those costs are financed. Mr. Curley’s book does just that: it shows us how to create the greatest benefits in terms of renewable energy and environmental improvements at the lowest possible cost to the people. For anyone interested in climate change and the environment, his book is a must-read."
––Bill Richardson - Former Governor of New Mexico

 "This is a definitive work in the strongest sense: it presents environmental finance as a critically important, if mostly unrecognized, function within environmental management. More importantly, Curley draws on his long experience as an innovative and influential practitioner to describe, for the first time in one place, the operating principles that define the field. His analyses of these principles manage to uncover previously unsuspected truths in some areas while slaying sacred cows in others. And, remarkably, he does all of this with an easy style that is frequently entertaining but always clear and effective."
––John J. Boland, The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland

"Michael Curley is a thoughtful and committed environmental financier whose instincts are sound and observations insightful. He understands how precious our environment is and how few our dollars. His [book] is an essential contribution to 21st century environmental policy."
―G. Tracy Mehan, III in THE ENVIRONMENTAL FORUM, September-October 2014
