BNP Climate Impact
Decades of global pursuit of economic growth has led to increasingly severe climate change-linked phenomena. We believe that this problem presents several investment opportunities as the rising demand for climate change solutions propel innovative companies to transition the world to be greener and more sustainable.
These innovative companies could enjoy multiple decades of growth and one way to get exposure would be through a fund investing in companies that enable mitigation of climate change or provide adaptation solutions for climate change.
