Sustainable Energy

Invest in companies producing renewable energy solutions

By investing in this Impact Area, you are supporting companies tackling climate change by ensuring access to affordable clean energy. You are also steering away from companies polluting the atmosphere with energy from non-renewable sources. Think wind turbines, rooftop solar panels, hydroelectric plants, battery technology and smart-grid projects.

Why It Matters

  • Renewable energy is expected to be the fastest-growing energy source, with annual consumption increasing by 2.3% annually between 2015 and 2040
  • Energy production is the largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions at 60%.
  • World electricity demand will increase by almost 30% by 2040 and clean energy solutions are imperative to help meet this demand.
  • Renewable energy is one of the most effective tools we have to fight climate change.

We evaluate companies based on how they are:

✔   Producing clean and renewable energy with a clearly net positive environmental impact

✔   Distributing products and services that facilitate clean and sustainable energy production

✔   Enabling reduced energy savings and consumption
