I know very little about investing, and who is and is not considered good advisors, but here is what one group has to say on investing and climate change. Trillions of dollars at stake from climate change Climate change increases uncertainty for long term institutional investors and as such, needs to be pro-actively managed. Investment opportunities in low carbon technologies could reach $5 trillion. The cost of impacts on the physical environment, health and food security could exceed $4 trillion. Climate change related policy changes could increase the cost of carbon emissions by as much as $8 trillion. Increasing allocation to climate sensitive assets will help to mitigate risks and capture new opportunities. Engagement with policy makers is crucial for institutional investors to pro-actively manage the potential costs of delayed and poorly co-ordinated climate policy action. Policy developments at the country level will produce new investment opportunities as well as risks that need to be constantly monitored. The EU and China/East Asia are set to lead investment in low carbon technology and efficiency improvements over the coming decades.
