Financial divestment has long been a powerful tool for social change, and climate change is no exception. Recent years have seen a sharply growing number of investors shift their portfolios away from companies that rely heavily on fossil fuels and toward businesses that demonstrate a commitment to environmentally sustainable practices. Green bonds, for example, are heavily oversubscribed in several market segments.With this development comes a growing number of options, not all of them compelling ones, for investors concerned about the environment. Where should you put your money? What does sustainable investment entail? We can help.
With its strong analytical competence, and two decades of experience with project assessment and implementation, Perspectives can support you in comprehensively assessing the environmental and social benefits (and risks) of your investment opportunities, allowing you to build a deeply informed investment strategy that sacrifices neither environmental responsibility nor financial performance.

What sets us apart
Making your investments a success story
Good investment decisions are built on good research. We provide in-depth analysis of the technical, financial, and regulatory factors affecting climate-friendly investment options. We pay just as much attention to your specific goals and needs, and work with you to develop investment strategies and system designs that blend economic performance with environmental responsibility.
As the sustainable-investment field grows, investors need more than platitudes and reassurances. Our decades of experience have taught us how to express good environmental practice in clear quantitative terms. From mitigation benefit to adaptation benefit, SDGs and CSR-related measures, we provide the hard data that supports good investment decisions.
Carbon markets are important, but sustainable investment can benefit from even more revenue streams. We will help you realise the full value of your investments through adaptation-benefits mechanisms, ecosystem services, and the long-term value of reduced climate-risk scoring.

Mobilising carbon dioxide removal through public policies and privae financing
Companies have an undeniable responsibility to act on climate change. Not only to reduce their emissions, but to communicate their progress towards carbon neutrality.
Reflections on the EU Commission’s recent Sustainable Carbon Cycle conference: What has been discussed, where do we stand, and what remains to be done?
Led by the European Commission, the European Parliament has adopted a net-zero greenhouse gas emissions target for 2050. The European Green Deal outlines a corresponding vision, outlines a range of possible scenarios, and describes a toolset to help EU member states achieve shared objectives. The Commission’s recent Communication on sustainable carbon cycles highlights three key actions, including “upscale carbon removal solutions”.
“Sustainability” has taken on such a range of connotations that even the companies most eager to pursue it can find themselves at a loss as to where to start. In this post, we’ll examine what sustainability means, and how Perspectives can help you make it part of your business strategy.
