Econopolis, a Swiss investment firm, is introducing its new green investing solution to fight against climate change that is inspired by Paul Hawken’s best-seller “Drawdown.”
Simplified for the layman, eco-investing or green investing is a form of socially responsible investing where investments are made in companies that support or provide environmentally friendly products and practices. These companies encourage new technologies that support the transition from carbon dependence to more sustainable alternatives.
The progress that sustainable investment has made in recent years has been stunning. It has gone from a niche investment style to a mainstream multi-trillion dollar industry. The rise of sustainability has produced some stunning statistics of its own – from wind turbines the size of skyscrapers to plans to create a Great Wall of Africa using trees. Mankind is on the eve of a structural growth trend that will last for years and even decades, and Econopolis is set to spearhead this growth with its inspired green investing solution.
Econopolis, which has over a decade of experience assisting private and institutional clients in managing their assets in a new financial-economic era, is giving clients the opportunity to reverse climate change by investing in the right economy, creating real value for the planet. With a focus on 7 themes of the UN Sustainable development goals, the firm provides concrete solutions and respects the guidelines advocated in the Drawdown book by Professor Paul Hawken to stop levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere from climbing.
Speaking about this new investment solution, the company founder, Geert Noels, said: “Taking advantage of secular growth trends in developed and emerging markets, our conviction-driven approach independent of reference indices is a win-win situation: achieving potential financial returns while doing the right thing.”
Paul Hawken’s best-seller “Drawdown,” which has inspired Econopolis’ new investment solution, contains the 100 most substantive solutions to reverse global warming, based on meticulous research by leading scientists and policymakers worldwide. The book has received rave reviews from notable environmentalists, with Andreas Kuhlmann, CEO German Energy Agency describing it as an exceptional example of cooperation between some of the sharpest thinkers on climate and energy matters, an atlas that has the potential to save the planet.
