We present a simple dynamic investment strategy that allows long-term passive investors to hedge climate risk without sacrificing financial returns. We illustrate how the tracking error can be virtually eliminated even for a low-carbon index with 50% less carbon footprint than its benchmark. By investing in such a decarbonized index, investors in effect are holding a “free option on carbon.”
The European Investment Bank (EIB) is one of the largest providers of climate-related investment globally. The EIB’s unique expertise and financial strength gets climate projects off the ground. However, the EIB cannot meet the challenge on its own. Cooperation with our partners is crucial. We focus where the impact of our investments is greatest. Innovative finance is key.
Between the Paris Climate agreement and the energy-focused Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), there has never been such a unified assortment of top-down policies driving the deployment
of clean energy. Both the SDGs and the Paris Agreement have been years in the making. For policy makers, meeting the obligations developed under these initiatives is the next challenge. This is the point at which the solar industry and those responsible for delivering cost effective emission reduction and universal access to electricity need to talk. This whitepaper details the opportunity for the solar sector and its ability to offer governments bankable, scalable clean energy that can be deployed extremely quickly.
Norwegians have always been intimately connected with challenging and spectacular nature; from rough oceans to rugged landscapes and jagged mountains. Over thousands of years, Norwegians have developed skills to not only control nature, but to survive and thrive with nature. Norway has been blessed with rich natural beauty, as well as an abundance of natural resources
Regulators in Europe are embarking on the widest-ranging reform of the bloc’s Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) since it was launched in 2005, which will result in many more industrial companies in Europe becoming exposed to emissions trading
The Government's commitment to the maritime industry is firmly rooted in the Sundvolden platform. The maritime industry is currently among Norway's most global, innovative and forward-looking industries. Its employment rate, value creation and spillover to other industries make it an important driving force in Norwegian business and industry. In order for the industry to further develop its value creation potential, it must be given the necessary political attention in order to continue its positive development
The Energi21 board presents in this document the third national strategy for research, development, demonstration and commercialisation of new climate-friendly energy technology. The strategy is targeted towards value creation and efficient utilisation of resources in the energy sector through investment in R&D activities and new technology to benefit society as a whole. Trade and industry has played a leading role in the strategy processes, and close cooperation with universities and research institutes has been emphasised
The World Bank is applying to transport initiatives a new and distinctive method of greenhouse gas (GHG) analysis as part of its comprehensive GHG accounting policy
Actions to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to stabilize warming at 2°C, as agreed by the international community in 2009, will fall short if they do not include the transport sector
The world faces two urgent challenges: eradicating poverty through economic development, and tackling climate change. Sustainable transport is crucial to both. In August 2014, the UN Secretary General established a High-Level Advisory Group on Sustainable Transport to make policy recommendations that “promote accelerated implementation of sustainable transport.”
