climate wealth creation

mpact investments can drive incredible wealth opportunities—and create a new economy. It is what I call, and the Carbon War Room has deemed, climate wealth creation.

To optimize climate wealth creation, we need structure. Structure assumes discipline. It helps investors choose between projects that have passed muster as opposed to projects with buzz that fizzle because they have no sustainable growth potential. It sets guidance parameters so investors find investments that will create new industries that deliver perpetual financial growth and return.

With rising commodity costs, water shortages, and global warming, the world market potential for these investments is enormous.

It is possible for a small group of people to lead a revolution from the “feel- good,” socially responsible investment that is attracting $9 billion in 2013 to impact investments that build solid businesses in perpetuity—ones that become the lion’s share of investor portfolios. Why? Simple: the financial returns are compelling, and the social and environmental impacts are awe-inspiring.
