Our Environmental Journey
2013: Tackling Water Challenges
Goldman Sachs Led Financings and Summit to Tackle Water Challenges
In 2013, we structured several innovative public-private financing transactions and convened thought leaders to explore the risks and opportunities in the water sector.
Lehigh County Authority Water & Sewer Revenue Bonds
In July 2013, Goldman Sachs acted as sole bookrunner in the issuance of $308 million for Lehigh County Authority water and sewer revenue bonds (City of Allentown Concession).
Bay Area Water Supply and Conservation Agency Revenue Bonds
In January 2013, Goldman Sachs helped raise water revenue refunding bonds valued at $335 million for the Bay Area Water Supply and Conservation Agency.
Water: Emerging Risks and Opportunities Summit
In February 2013, Goldman Sachs hosted a summit on the emerging risks and opportunities in the water sector. We brought together leading investors, policymakers and academics to tackle water challenges through capital, policy and technology solutions.
The summit advanced our partnership in the Aqueduct Alliance with GE and the World Resources Institute, who co-hosted the event.
