Climate change creates silver lining for investors, according to World Nano Foundation
LONDON, May 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Saving the planet from Climate Change devastation can benefit investors as well as our future, according to a new Venture Capital (VC) trend.
2021 has already seen multiple climate-focused fund launches. London-based One Planet Capital launched a fund for green tech, fintech, and sustainability-based B2C businesses. At the same time, Hollywood 'Iron Man' actor Robert Downey Jr has founded FootPrint Coalition Ventures to invest in high-growth, sustainability-focused companies.
Paul Stannard, Co-Founder of The World Nano Foundation and General Partner of Vector Innovation Fund based out of London and Luxembourg, predicts that sustainability, environmental and social governance will shape the next decade in terms of value creation around climate change as well as healthcare.
He said, "You can trackback the pandemic to climate change. More and more of the world's population live in urban developments. This has had a massive effect on bio-diversity as the natural world has come into contact more regularly with humankind. Over 220 pathogens have come from animals, and only a handful have a clinically approved technological solution.
"We believe you cannot separate what we are doing with carbon emissions and other significant challenges such as the pandemic and future healthcare provision. We think you can make substantial returns on capital and solve climate change, pandemic protection and preparedness by investing in advanced nanotechnologies that can make the world a fairer and safer place."#globalwarming #climatechange #carboncompensation #bluesky #climateemergency #climatecrisis #blueskye #blueskyefoundation #compensate #greentechexchange #zerocarbon #climatenews #blueskyelife #elonmusk #billgates #greentech #nasa #nasaclimate #greenfacts #leadership
