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.
The purpose of this white paper is to analyze the impact that the global agreement on climate change has on privately-owned banks. Thus, it details the main driving forces behind the development of a low-carbon economy and explains Banco Santander’s approach regarding its own contribution
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
As the global population moves toward 10 billion—a level experts anticipate we’ll hit by 2050—designers worldwide are using their skills and talents to imagine, design, and create a better world where everyone can live well and live within the limits of our planet.
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.”
Initiatives which catalyse climate action are now recognised increasingly as playing an important role in mitigating greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and bridging the global emissions gap. The number and range of these initiatives is growing rapidly. There are several open questions about these initiatives at a global scale, including what contribution they can make to closing the emissions gap, but also what makes a successful initiative and how can this be replicated and scaled up. This paper focuses on the first of these questions
