Clean alternative energy is an obvious area for investment. Less obvious, perhaps, are the components and systems that cut emissions by improving energy efficiency. Then there are technologies, like those driving the future of transport or transforming energy storage, that make modern life less polluting. Moving to a more circular economy – by designing out waste, keeping materials in use for as long as possible, recycling, and regenerating natural systems – can also play a major role in the transition to a low-carbon future.
Solving the greatest challenges facing global society – as articulated by the UN Sustainable Development Goals – presents an investment opportunity worth trillions of dollars over the coming decade. From sustainable packaging to energy-efficient buildings, companies are pioneering, leading and enabling wide-reaching changes that can address climate change.
