Investing in the global green economy: busting common myths

According to a report by FTSE Russell, a key provider of stock market indices and associated data , the green economy is now worth as much as the fossil fuel sector and offers more significant and safe investment opportunities, pointing towards even more significant growth in the future. The green economy is defined as an economy that aims at reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities, and that aims for sustainable development without degrading the environment. The green economy is also characterized by being efficient, clean, circular, collaborative and low carbon. As such, it is central to achieving the key objective of the Paris Agreement on climate action.
