Climate Change Investing

Climate change is the biggest challenge for the planet in the years and decades to come. Addressing this will require a transition to a low-carbon economy. This will change societies, businesses and industries.

The good news is that the transition is happening now, and the technologies needed have become mainstream. Climate change investing is your chance to capture the potential returns from this transformation. Begin your climate change investment journey today.

Our world is changing

The earth’s surface is warming up at a never before seen rate. It is now clear that climate change poses grave environmental risks, but we are only just starting to understand the potential social and economic effects.

Many governments are committed to limiting temperature increases, and industries are fast adopting carbon elimination plans. But action to bring down greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to combat climate change must accelerate if we are to meet global climate change goals.

Reduction of GHG emissions per capita by 2050 is needed to meet the 2°C limit. To do so, a radical change in the structure of the global economy is required.

A climate for opportunity

An 80% reduction will require investments of around US$2tn a year into products and services that will help us move towards a low-carbon future. This equates to US$20tn over the next decade (the value of the US economy). 

And even if national commitments are fulfilled, GHG emissions will eventually need to fall to zero or temperatures will continue to rise.  

Dramatic economic transformation is needed if we want to achieve these goals. This creates huge investment opportunities for active managers.
