Keen do something about the threat of climate change? How about investing in the companies which will help lessen the impact of global warming on our planet and its population.

An increasing number of businesses are developing new technologies to manage the impact of climate change, presenting attractive opportunities for investors – from a returns standpoint as well as an environmental one.

“Five years ago, governments of developed nations set a goal pledging $100 billion every year to deal with the worst effects of climate change. But they now only have $10 billion in place, meaning that the remainder must come from the private sector,” said Bertrand Gacon, head of impact with Lombard Odier.
