Investing by theme: Clean energy

Why consider investing in clean energy

The Paris Agreement to address climate change created a plan for the world’s major industrialized countries to reach “net zero” carbon emissions by 2050. The energy sector contributes about 40% of global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), which is why many countries are exploring how to replace carbon-producing fossil fuels with energy from renewable resources. Ultimately, achieving the Paris Agreement goals will require trillions of dollars to be invested into key green technologies such as electric vehicles, renewable energy, and biofuels.*
