The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published the first of three volumes of its fifth Assessment Report (AR5). The findings of the report show that mainstream businesses have become greener, with an emphasis on reducing carbon emissions which are the key sectors for impact investment.
The report also indicates that the public demands for a greener change, and impact investment is one powerful tool to counter climate change. The “greening” trend among multinationals could spur opportunities for impact intermediaries, dynamic impact enterprises and engaged impact investors.
