  2. CFA Institute: Hedging Climate Risk
    CFA Institute: Hedging Climate Risk 1 Jul 2016

    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 climate finance pioneer 4 May 2016

    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.

  4. Solar's global opportunity: Delivering the UN climate and environment pledges
    Solar's global opportunity: Delivering the UN climate and environment pledges 15 Apr 2016

    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.
