Nothing But Clear Skies

How to Move Sustainable Investing into the Spotlight
The lessons learned in bringing an asset class from infancy to maturity are many, but if 25 years have taught me anything, it’s that positioning is everything. We need to talk the right talk to move sustainable investments from the fringe to the forefront—where they belong.

Feature

Sticking with Paris, Market Mechanisms Benefit All
The possibility of the U.S. withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement is real, and could be a huge setback in the progress made toward lowering greenhouse gas emissions. What the U.S. should not do is let despair get the best of us and disrupt the progress that has already been made.

Point of View

Richard Gilmore, GIC Group
Emissions Reductions for Agriculture
Trading carbon credits on futures exchanges in the US, London, and Paris was once regarded as the most effective strategy for industries and agriculture to cut back on their greenhouse gas emissions. While the fate of carbon futures has at times seemed grim, the market is now ready and can accommodate these new futures contracts that offer an effective and equitable route to achievable carbon reduction.
