Over the past few years, as better data has made the risks and opportunities associated with climate change more apparent, investors and businesses have begun to invest in sustainable activities and rethink investment in fossil fuels.
As 2019 came to a close, a period of enormous upheaval was just beginning.
The past few months have been extremely difficult for communities all over the world and for businesses in every industry — and most of all, for those who have lost loved ones to coronavirus, or who have lost their jobs because of it. The pandemic has brought about the most severe economic downturn the world has seen in many years, but it can also be a turning point that propels us forward — including in the fight against climate change.

Since Bloomberg first began investigating renewable energy projects more than a decade ago, we have exceeded our initial renewable energy goals by investing in both significant off-site wind and solar projects and smaller on-site activities.
