Finance at the service of the Planet: from Energy Transition to sustainable investments. Why and how investment choices can affect the future (and survival) of the next generations.
The energy transition process is necessary to design a future in which climate change does not determine life choices forced by the attempt to escape natural upheavals. Its advantages, however, are not limited to the environment, but branch out into the economic and productive fabric: in saving the planet, new jobs can be created and will be created.
It is a question of operating the same paradigm shift that allowed the transition from wood to coal in the 19th century and from coal to oil in the 20th, without disregarding, however, the fundamental clause of the urgency to save the planet from anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases. The 97% of global warming, in fact, is caused by humans and their production activities.
What are the actions that the economy and finance can take to make a contribution or even be a leader in safeguarding the planet? Will policymakers be able to think of shared rules that allow the productive fabric to create a future in which decarbonization is progress for all and, therefore, reduces inequalities instead of creating new ones?
