The urgency to address climate change is escalating as global warming now poses an ever-increasing threat to lives, livelihoods, and biodiversity. Greenhouse gases (GHG) in the atmosphere have risen to record levels not seen in three million years. Investment in climate-resilient infrastructure and a transition to a low-carbon future is critical to drive change while presenting attractive investment fundamentals.
The waste, recycling, and circular economy industry presents a specific and unique opportunity to investors as the world transitions to a low-carbon economy. Apart from increasing economic and environmental resiliency, the sector provides social benefits through near-term job creation as well.
