Stuff, John Berry, 4 February 2018
OPINION: As an investor, it's not relevant whether you believe the science of climate change stacks up.
The weight of evidence is compelling, but set that aside. The world has changed, your investments are already starting to price in climate change.
Carbon credits are now currency in today's economy and therefore a company's carbon footprint is starting to become as important as its profits, for assessing a share's value.
High carbon companies will be forced to reorganise their activities, or they will be sold down by investors.
Those positioning their investment portfolios to recognise this should win, whether global warming actually happens or not.
