What is Climate investing?

Climate change has been changing the way investors think about investing, especially when it comes to their impact on the environment. Sustainable investing platforms like GOODFOLIO are designed for conscious investors looking to enable positive solutions through their capital.
Climate investing refers to the practice of investing in companies, funds, or assets that are focused on mitigating or adapting to climate change. 
The goal of climate investing is to support businesses and projects that are working towards reducing carbon emissions, promoting clean energy, and implementing sustainable practices. 
Climate investing can take various forms, including investing in renewable climate-friendly stocks, environmental ETFs, green bonds and more. 
It’s an area that has become more popular as investors recognize the impact of supporting sustainable companies and initiatives. By investing in climate solutions, investors can potentially generate returns while also contributing to a healthier planet for future generations.

Climate-friendly stocks

Climate-friendly stocks are shares of companies that are promoting environmental and social characteristics. Many of them are directly involved in businesses that aim to combat climate change or reduce carbon emissions. 
These companies may be involved in developing clean energy technologies, providing energy efficiency solutions, or implementing sustainable practices. 
This provides investors with an opportunity to invest in companies that are working towards a more sustainable future, while potentially generating returns for their portfolios.

Environmental ETFs

Investing in environmental ETFs can be an effective way to support a positive environmental impact while potentially generating returns. 
Investing in environment ETFs is like investing in a basket of climate-related stocks.
They are designed to provide investors with exposure to a diversified portfolio of companies that are working towards reducing carbon emissions and transitioning towards a more sustainable energy future.
Environment ETFs typically provide exposure to companies offering products and services that:‍
✔️Enable Greenhouse Gas Reduction
✔️Improves energy efficiency 
✔️Develop innovative solutions to environmental challenges
✔️Pursue opportunities arising from the transition to lower carbon economy
✔️Involved in clean energy including renewable sources such as solar, wind and geothermal power
It should be noted however that not all environmental ETFs are going to directly be involved in climate solutions. 
They will be promoting environmental characteristics to qualify as such, but if you want to invest specifically in those that have sustainable investment as an objective then you should look for ETFs that are categorised as SFDR article 9 funds.

Green Bonds

Green Bonds are debt instruments that are issued to finance environmentally beneficial projects such as renewable energy, energy efficiency, and sustainable waste management.
Examples of projects financed by green bond issuance include: renewable energy, clean transportation and climate change adoption.
They are just one type of fixed income ETF, which provides a regular, fixed payment to the investor in exchange for the use of their money over a set period of time.
