Climate change is an investment risk too and cannot be ignored by investors. Heat waves and heavy rains are destroying agriculture areas, physical building damages are caused by extreme weather, shortage of potable water – at the end many business areas are concerned directly or indirectly.
The ability to mitigate climate change will depend on a systematic departure from fossil fuels over the coming years, starting now.
The transition from fossil fuels to renewables is an highly attractive opportunity for future oriented investments as it includes not only a change in energy consumption, but also a change in the technology base of important economic areas such as the production and transport industry.
We believe a holistic and flexible approach is needed to address the investment opportunity this energy and technology transition offers, including the production of renewable energy, circular economy measures, and integrated cleantech solutions enabling the use of clean energy.
