Capturing value in infrastructure investing in Emerging Markets

The emphasis on green, sustainable, environmental social governance, and impact investing is one of the greatest investment trends of our generation. It has upended some of the world’s largest companies, and catalyzed a shift in strategy for some of the most sophisticated institutional investors.

Key insights from the report include:

  • The impact of the climate change revolution has become mission critical for major multinational corporations, across sectors.
  • There is an estimated $23 trillion investment opportunity in green and climate investing in Emerging Markets.

About PwC’s Cornering the globe publication series:

Cornering the globe is a publication of PwC’s Geopolitical Investing practice, and is intended to highlight key issues our clients should be considering as they think about expanding into global markets. At the Macro level, long-term economic and demographic trends indicate an abundance of opportunities to profit and expand in emerging markets. However, the risks of doing business in these regions - such as exchange rate volatility, political uncertainty, meeting the skills gap, and shifts in tax and regulation - often hamper decision-making, forcing companies to react to events, rather than prepare for change, and capitalize on potential dislocations. By critically assessing key geopolitical issues that impact our clients, we provide insight into the ways in which companies can build capabilities to weather political and economic change in their foreign operations. Our Geopolitical Investing team combines rigorous insight into the key macroeconomic and geopolitical issues facing business leaders today, with deep industry and sector expertise, helping companies to strategically allocate capital to grow specific business units or assets in markets around the world.
