Green Bonds Help Investors Fight Climate Change
According to the International Energy Agency, carbon-based electricity generation contributed over 30% of total global greenhouse gas emissions in 2018, by far the largest source of global GHG emission.
To minimize the impact of climate change and meet the Paris Agreement’s goal to limit the increase in global warming to 2°C, Morgan Stanley Research estimates that the world needs to spend US$50 trillion over the next 30 years in clean energy and technology.
The International Renewable Energy Agency forecasts that US$750 billion a year is needed in renewables alone over the next decade.
The question on the minds of many investors is not whether to join in this growth, but how to channel capital into wind, solar, hydro-electric, bio-energy, energy efficiency and geothermal projects to help slow and mitigate climate change.
Green bonds represent an exciting opportunity for socially and environmentally conscious investors, who want to make sure their dollars are going towards protecting and restoring the environment.
Investors can reduce the carbon intensity of their portfolios in many ways, through funds that exclude fossil fuels, integrate ESG factors, or focus on positive impact.
