The global race to net zero is only viable if the energy sector can rapidly transition to renewable sources of energy. International policy support, cost reductions and innovations are improving the speed at which this industry can scale. This is just the beginning.
- The sector must grow to 60% of all global energy generation by 2030.
- The global building stock is expected to double in size by 2050 but all new buildings must be net zero.
- Electric vehicle sales must represent more than 60% of all vehicles sold globally by 2030.
From unpredictable and extreme weather conditions to soaring food prices and drought, there is nowhere to hide from a climate emergency. A swift and efficient transition from non-renewable energy to green energy and technologies is critical to mitigating some of the more dire impacts of a rapidly changing climate. Each company in the Green Energy & Technology UCITS ETF has been hand-selected because their products or services play a critical role in this transition.
The funds in the new portfolio provide access to more investment areas and countries than previous funds on the CIRCA5000 platform. Check out some of the companies in the Green Energy & Technology fund.
