Patricia Voorhees to address ELFA Credit and Collections Management Conference

SAN ANTONIO, June 5, 2023Patricia Voorhees, a director at The Alta Group, will share insights to help leasing professionals capitalize on the projected multi-trillion-dollar opportunity in climate equipment finance at the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association’s (ELFA) 2023 Credit and Collections Management Conference here June 7-9.

Climate Equipment Finance Forecast

Climate-focused equipment is forecast to generate $18 trillion in financing opportunity between now and 2030, according to the ELFA’s Top 10 Equipment Acquisition Trends for 2023. Voorhees will examine recent policy decisions that are driving this activity and quantify the market opportunity in “Climate Financing for Credit,” the conference’s opening general session discussion.

Voorhees is a recognized thought leader who has written and presented widely on the significant opportunity that climate equipment finance presents for the industry. She previously spoke about the topic at the ELFA’s 61st Annual Convention in 2022 and more recently at the ELFA Legal Forum in April. Her writing about climate equipment finance was published in the 2023 Monitor Innovation Edition. She was a lead author on the Equipment Leasing and Finance Foundation’s 2022 study, “The ESG Imperative: Understanding the Opportunities for the Equipment Leasing and Finance Industry”—the industry’s seminal study on climate finance and related ESG issues.

As chair of the ELFA’s Climate Finance Working Group (CFWG), Voorhees will also share information on how this new group can provide education, best practices, and advocacy. Joining Voorhees in the opening session discussion are Louis Maslowe, chief risk officer, Commercial Domain, at DLL, and Michael Mount, SVP, credit executive, U.S. Bank Equipment Finance, who will discuss risk and best practices related to climate equipment finance.

The ELFA is offering both virtual and in-person formats for the 2023 Credit and Collections Management Conference. Learn more at
