Happy Thanksgiving

Thankful for bounty of opportunities

As part of Prizma, a boutique environmental and social advisory practice, I have been fortunate to be able to contribute to some unique projects. These include the Penonomé Wind development in Panama, which was recently visited by former US President Bill Clinton, as well as Lucara Diamond, which recently recovered a 1,111 carat gem quality diamond in Bostwana. You can read more about these projects and Prizma's involvement below.   Shortlink: http://wp.me/p27qSt-NR

IFC Performance Standards and ESMS Training for InterEnergy Holdings

In early May 2015, Prizma had the opportunity to deliver a tailored 2-day training course to representatives from several of InterEnergy Holdings’ portfolio companies.
