The TH Interview: Mark Tercek—An Investment Golden Boy Heads for the NGO World



As the world’s largest investment bank, Goldman Sachs raised some bushy eyebrows when it began putting its weight behind green investments. Spearheading the bank’s Environmental Markets Initiative was Mark Tercek, a managing director and longtime veteran of the bank. But now Goldman’s green golden boy is packing his bags to take the top seat at The Nature Conservancy, one of the world’s largest environmental NGOs. Here, Mark speaks about crisis at the Conservancy, his two decades at Goldman, the green bubble, and the end of greenwashing. ::TreeHugger Radio
