Recent months and years have once again highlighted the consequences for society of unchanged climate-damaging actions. That's because the directly measurable damages from natural disasters totaled $160 billion in 2019. And in 2020, the figure already exceeded $200 billion.
This contrasts with about $915 billion already invested in renewable energy and energy efficiency projects in 2019. But studies have shown that this amount will need to at least triple by 2030-40 to meet the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.
And so it is little wonder that the biggest climate sinners are taking decisive and targeted action in 2020 (e.g. the U.S. by re-entering the Paris Climate Agreement). Therefore, "clean technologies" should also offer attractive investment opportunities in the coming decades.
In today’s webinar you will learn:
-that climate change should not only be perceived as a financial risk but also as a long-term investment opportunity
-an update on the latest political and technological progress towards carbon neutrality targets
-the concept of climate mitigation and climate adaptation as well as a selection of long-term sustainable investment trends with strong growth potential
-how to unlock value by investing into clean technology stocks while taking into account theme purity as well as ESG criteria
Investors who consider climate change not only as a major damaging event but also as an opportunity are looking at a broad investment spectrum. The topic of climate change has the potential to demonstrate once again how well investors with dedicated funds can reconcile return and sustainability goals.
