Climate Change: enabling transformation at the core

DPAM 3rd Sustainability Seminar 2019
This year, a variety of speakers, ranging from representatives from international institutions to academics and corporates, highlighted the significant opportunities lying ahead of us as we transition towards a low-carbon world.

The current state of the environment, from all perspectives (air, oceans and coasts, freshwater, biodiversity and land, and soil) is in crisis. Still, the message is clear: it is not too late, but we need to act now. Indeed, we have already observed a lot of innovation, but we also urgently need ambition and investments.

Green bonds, even though they only represent less than 1% of the global financial needs for energy transition, are a relevant example of innovation. They offer investors the necessary tools to finance the low carbon economy. The fixed income market is an important financial leverage, which should be used by investors to finance the real economy. Nowadays, you can find innovations in solutions, products and services developed by companies to face the on-going climate transition. As such, climate change offers a large array of opportunities for a global long-term investor.
