Climate change is an environmental issue but it has also become a financial one.
CLIMATE CHANGE • IMPACT INVESTING
Exposure to the damaging impacts of climate change – including extreme temperatures, floods, droughts, wildfires – is increasingly seen as a financial risk and included in the analysis of most investments, from real estate to corporate and government securities. Not surprisingly, more capital is being invested in products and services to mitigate or adapt to climate change.
With challenge comes opportunity! Citizen Mint believes climate change is likely to drive one of the greatest capital investment cycles in history, leading to significant innovations across all parts of the economy. As such, we believe it will be one of the most promising investment opportunities of our lifetime, and is one of the reasons we created the Citizen Mint platform.
Investment Required to Hit Target
Net zero by the year 2040 (no additional greenhouse gas emissions generated) is the goal for avoiding dire climate change. Getting there will require global commitment and worldwide investment of $1-$2 trillion each year (about 1% to 2% of global GDP), according to estimates by Wellington Investment Management, a leader in climate investing in both public and private markets.
