What does “Sustainability” mean?
While financial performance remains the top priority of all businesses, non-financial induced effects of corporate activities have a significant impact on the community and the environment at large. Investors and companies are facing increasing scrutiny over Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues from diverse stakeholders groups. Corporate sustainability is a carefully engineered balancing act between economic, social and environmental objectives.
What does "Cleantech" or "Greentech" mean?
Cleantech (or clean technologies) also known as Greentech (or green technologies) are knowledge-based products and services that optimise the use of natural resources, reduce ecological impacts and add economic value. The cleantech (or greentech) concept is not specific to a particular sector: It encompasses solar energy, wind energy, bio-energy (biomass, biogas and biofuels), other renewables (marine energy, geothermal energy), energy storage, energy efficiency, transportation and logistics, water and wastewater purification and management, air and environment quality, manufacturing and industrial, agriculture and food, enabling technologies, materials and resources efficiency, recycling and waste management, environmental ITn amongst others. Cleantech markets represent annual global revenues greater than $500 billion, and segments such as wind and solar energy boast 5-10 year compound annual revenue growth rates as high as 40%.
As an investor, how do I pay for independent research?
Many investors are able to pay independent research providers directly. Some, however, must allocate commission payments indirectly through their existing brokers or through independent third parties. If you are considering this you may like to know that clients can now pay for our service via a CSA (Commission Sharing Agreement), an independent execution and commission management provider with trading desks in both London and Hong Kong. Our partner provides a broker neutral execution platform with an emphasis on top tier execution quality, independently tracked by industry leading transaction cost analysis.
