Climate investing: Is it sustainable?


PwC’s Alexis Crow explores the relationship between climate change and economics.

ESG (environmental, social, governance) investing has been designated as the single greatest investment trend of a generation. Even amidst the uncertainty surrounding the US-China trade war, investors in US markets have continued to pour into sustainable-focused funds, marking record high allocations. The "E" or environmental component in ESG is by far the one that garners the most attention. But is climate investing actually sustainable? In this publication, we explore the facts behind climate change and economics; responses to climate change around the world; and highlight the long-term opportunities for both corporate executives as well as global investors. Learn more from PwC’s Dr. Alexis Crow, Lead, Geopolitical Investing, in this edition of Cornering the Globe.

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.
