The Environmental Markets Network (EMN) is a new initiative of Environmental Defense to build support in the financial community for market-based solutions to climate change and other environmental problems.Â EMN was formerly led by Jon A. Anda, former Vice Chairman of Morgan Stanley and current Executive in Residence at Duke University's Fuqua School of Business.Â
EMN focuses on climate change legislation, where a cap on greenhouse gas emissions and a sound trading system offer a roadmap for economic growth and sound environmental policy.Â EMN provides a resource for policymakers in Washington, communicates with the public and press, links academic research with sound action and converts market knowledge into environmental solutions.
During his 20 year career at Morgan Stanley, Mr. Anda led a number of business units including Global Capital Markets, Corporate Finance, Equity Capital Markets, Investment Banking Asia, and Institutional Equities Asia.Â After joining the firm in 1986, he was named Managing Director in 1992 while serving as a generalist investment banker in the Firm's Chicago office.Â Mr. Anda has worked with a wide range of clients including GE, Google, The Peoples Republic of China, and The Chicago Mercantile Exchange.
Mr. Anda graduated from the University of Illinois in 1979 and received his Master of Management in Finance from Northwestern University, Kellogg Graduate School of Management in 1980.Â He is a member of the Board of Trustees of the Asia Society, and previously served on the President's Advisory Council of Environmental Defense.
