Green Investing 2009: Towards a Clean Energy Infrastructure
The World Economic Forum is proud to release this report as part of our Green Investing project. The Green Investing project, which was mandated by the Forum’s Investors community at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos in January 2008, aims to explore ways in which the world’s leading investors can most effectively engage in the global effort to address climate change. The investment volumes required to avoid the catastrophic impact of climate change are substantial and success will largely depend on the successful mobilization of both the public and private sectors. This report highlights viable business opportunities in the energy sector that could have high abatement potential, while enabling investors to sustain their long-term corporate assets and shareholder value. Furthermore, the report aims to identify policy recommendations that could potentially enable the efficient deployment of further necessary private capital.
