Green Investing

Tired of investing in evil companies that are hurting the planet?  Think the green economy is the way of the future?

Since 2007, more than $4 trillion has been invested in the green economy.  Investors around the world are looking at sectors like renewable energy, energy efficiency, water infrastructure, and smart grids.  There are lots of great options for investors who want exposure to these sectors.

Topics include:

-Measuring the Green Transition

-Opportunities and Risks
