Investing in the Era of Climate Change

Hear from Bruce Usher, Professor of Practice at Columbia Business School, as we examine the investment opportunities and strategies that have emerged in response to the challenges of climate change.

We know that we need to rapidly reduce global greenhouse gas emissions in order to avoid catastrophic levels of climate change. This will require considerable private capital. Thankfully, there are significant investment opportunities today to support this transition, including renewable energy, electric vehicles, and battery storage, to name just a few. 

Today’s discussion is all about the investment opportunities arising from climate change and the strategies that investors are using to pursue them. We’ll explore three key themes:

  • The trends that are accelerating the flow of capital into transition investments;
  • The pros and cons of different investment strategies, such as divestment and ESG investing;
  • And what lies ahead for those who are investing in the era of climate change.
