So-called ‘green investing’ is one of the fastest-growing themes of the capital markets, with nearly $50 trillion in assets expected to flow in by 2025, according to Bloomberg Intelligence. But it’s also one of the most misunderstood areas of investing. As more investors use environmental and social standards to make their investment decisions, they still have to figure out what green investing actually is, and how to make it part of their portfolios.
Investors' interest in green or sustainable investing has become intensified by the realities of the climate crisis on this planet. Ten of last year’s most destructive weather events cost a combined $170 billion in damages, according to a new study from Christian Aid, a U.K.-based charity. The risk to global assets and investments underlying those assets is in the hundreds of trillions of dollars, yet it is rarely factored into most investment decisions by individual investors.
How do investors identify the companies, products, industries, and policies that are actively working to reduce the sources of climate change, pollution, and environmental destruction, while making business more sustainable in the process? How do they invest in them? How do new policies and technologies change the marketplace? Who are the change-makers in this growing industry?
That’s what this podcast will explore. We will cover how to distinguish between ESG, SRI, and Impact Investing. We will learn how to use tools and research to help construct portfolios that are more aligned with sustainable investing. We will discover which companies, products, and change-makers are poised to lead the industry now, and in the future.
