Climate change, does in fact, change everything!
Decarbonisation focuses on a single aspect of the investment portfolio, namely climate risk, which is a huge concern for our society.
If we are to feasibly tackle climate change, we must rapidly decarbonise the world.
To do this we believe that a critical and growing mass of investors worldwide needs to start taking action to align their investment portfolios with the low carbon economy.
As a result, investors should be looking underneath the portfolio level into sectors and asset classes, and be willing to disinvest from companies with high carbon footprint and invest the proceeds into companies that have a low or zero-carbon footprint.
Furthermore, as the stigmatisation of the fossil fuel industry gains momentum (through the divestment movement), fossil fuel giants would learn not to take for granted their licenses to operate, as it stands today.
Finally, unlike what is commonly believed, the transformation scenario does not come at the expense of overall returns at the portfolio level. It is not punitive, from an investment perspective.
We are trying to be a ‘future maker’ – but we cannot do this alone – it takes a chorus of courageous people to make our collective future.
