Hot topic: Accessing opportunities around decarbonisation and energy transition

Given the scale of the challenge, climate change is perhaps the largest investment opportunities of this century and decarbonisation solutions will play an essential role in accelerating the transition to a cleaner environment. For GPs, energy and climate represent a once in a generation investment opportunity if they can develop the internal skills to identify, win and operate assets that harness the growth. Climate change is barely out of the news so for those that can raise capital or pivot their focus to generate a positive environmental impact along with the financial returns, the ability to succeed when fundraising and future stability is increased.

  • Which sectors are the most conducive to investment?
  • What opportunities exist in sectors and assets that are not thematically aligned to decarbonisation?
  • How are investors building processes and data management to avoid greenwashing?
