NET ZERO CARBON
I am reading recently, that the net zero carbon concept, won’t save us all...
The idea that the emitting of carbon today, can be offset by future technological advances in carbon reduction, or storage, is a fallacy, according to some of the experts who have previously supported the idea. In short, allowing things to get worse before we get our house in order, leaves it all too late. Weather just doesn’t work like that. Change and new solutions need to be more immediate.
Investors support for IMPACT investments has rocketed this last 2-3 years. Impact investments are those whose major purpose is to improve our world. The common framework is to follow the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The question is therefore are all the positive developments such as impact investing, too little too late ?
As an optimist, I have to believe we are on the right track. Look what happened when all the worlds brains concentrated on a COVID vaccine. We don’t get one, we get several, in record time. We now have to have the same attitude to climate change, and environmental protection.
That work is supported by impact investors. Why not become an impact investor, through your ISAs, Pensions, Bonds, and the like. It’s easier than you think.
