Big problems create big opportunity. There are few problems the world faces as big as protecting the environment. This problem creates huge profit potential in green investments.
Plus the risk of a new terrorist EMP attack could create a new international investment era that accelerates green investment potential especially in the field of non grid alternative energy.
We have proven the potential of green investments with our Green Portfolio that rose 266.30% in the first year (2007 to 2008) that Jyske Bank’s staff created and we tracked.
Now the same staff sends this thought:
There is a lot of focus these days on the climate changes and the “Green Energy” solution. Our capitol Copenhagen will actually host the UN Climate Change Conference (COP15) in December 7-18th 2009.
US President Barack Obama and his Chinese counterpart Hu Jintao have committed themselves to strive for a wide consensus and a successful Copenhagen climate change conference. According to Xinhuanet, both parties expressed the wish that the two countries should set up common targets and carry out constructive, practical cooperation in developing clean energy and addressing climate changes.
Countries in Asia have been using a large part of their stimulus packages on “Green solutions.” South Korea has spent up to 79% and China has used 34% of the above stimulus package on investments in green technology. They have at the same time announced, that they intend to be a leading player in Energy Technology. At the same time India is investing massively in solar and wind energy.
Therefore, these investments in “Green Energy” will be a driving force on future growth in the area.
We believe that the “climate aspect” has to be integrated into future investments, and that such a strategy can offer good returns.
