CAPRC ADVISORY BOARD MEMBERS AUTHOR NEW BOOK: 
ENERGY AND FINANCE: SUSTAINABILITY  IN THE ENERGY INDUSTRY
Dr. Ozgur  Arslan-Ayaydin, CAPRC advisory board Member; Dr. Mehmet  Baha Karan , CAPRC associate board member and regional Coordinator; and Dr. Andre’ Dorsman,  a CAPRC Supporter; jointly announced the publication of their new book, “Energy and Finance: Sustainability in the Energy Industry”.

41DLqEqcVpL__SX330_BO1,204,203,200_The book analyses how socially responsible investments as well as the rising importance of Islamic finance are linked to the shift towards renewable energy. Academics and practitioners in the field take a global perspective and present case studies from several countries. The book is divided into three parts: The first part sheds new light on the energy shift towards renewable energy. The second shows the increasing interest of investors in sustainability, and the authors argue that investors not only look at expected returns and risks, but also at social returns. Finally, the third part explains the need for social returns in Islamic finance, which cannot be explained by traditional finance theory. This is the fifth volume in a series on energy organized by the Centre for Energy and Value Issues (CEVI).

 “We are delighted to take our signature event to Uzbekistan this year and have DAS Michael Lally’s support and participation.  Without a doubt, AUCC is the best example of the Private-Public Partnership and the most effective conduit for the US bilateral trade with Uzbekistan. AUCC has successfully channeled our assessment and vision of the country’s technological and industrial modernization through the forum and used it as a platform to declare our readiness and will to better serve the interests of the American and Uzbek peoples,” said AUCC Chairperson Lamm. “The chamber sincerely hopes that our commercial aspirations will continue to be supported by the Governments of the US and Uzbekistan that have both outlined business and commerce as a pillar of their bilateral agenda.  We are grateful to DAS Michael Lally for his leadership and attention to this part of the world,” added AUCC President Nadherny.   

AUCC is a private, non-governmental, 501 (c)(6) trade association that was established in 1993 in Washington, DC.  The chamber is the oldest business group in the US and the Republic of Uzbekistan that exclusively represents commercial interests of the US corporations before the governments of our two countries.
