Unless you've been living under a rock, you know at ESG and Climate investment, in particular, is the rage in the investing world. According to a Morningstar report from April of this year, sustainability-focused funds have attracted record inflows in 2021 with assets now at $2 trillion. On this episode, you'll hear Jim speak iClima co-founders Gaby Herculano and Shaila Leekha about this strong investor interest in low-carbon investment. The two tell me how they use CO2 avoidance as a metric for decarbonization impact, and the investment opportunities in energy generation at the point of use, from software to electric vehicles, as well as green hydrogen. They also tell Jim about the important roles those industries and sectors will play in innovation, impact, and returns.
