Financing the Shift to Net Zero

The shift to net-zero requires both a transition in global energy and a significant reduction in greenhouse gases emitted by industries. Both require huge levels of investment.  However, most investments required to shift to net zero are large, complex, and risky. This raises an interesting question of where the money will come from to achieve net-zeroContinue reading “Financing the Shift to Net Zero”
