As we look forward to the next 30 years, we believe that capital markets are on the precipice of an increase in the impact of corporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance on security prices. We expect a corresponding acceleration of capital deployed to solve the environmental challenges we face today, such as excessive greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and plastic pollution. We also expect substantial improvement in corporate diversity, equity and inclusion performance.

Investors are also strategically using their investments to support communities that are currently experiencing the direct effects of climate change in their everyday lives. Community development financial institutions have received a surge of investments in the last decade. Yet, investments in community investing institutions are still only 1.6% of the $16.6 trillion in ESG incorporated assets. Many communities are in crisis mode as they face mounting health issues and even death because of climate change.
The coming decades will require an epochal transition from an industrial-age economy where negative long-term environmental and social externalities are ignored to a sustainable economy where future growth is accompanied by dramatically improved environmental and social outcomes. The future of human civilization as well as countless species, and indeed of nature itself, depends on it.

Like most moms-to-be, I felt a mixture of total joy and utter terror when I learned my husband and I were expecting. My own doubts about my fitness to bring a child into this world tempered the elation I felt that…well, that I’d be bringing a child into this world!
How Electric Vehicle Charging Technology Holds the Key to Global Adoption
Driven by environmental and sustainability concerns and increasing clean air legislation, the de-carbonization of automobiles and other transportation is gaining rapid momentum. As electric vehicle (EV) technology advances, the viability of the technology versus traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) powered vehicles is increasing. Also, the choice of models available to more environmentally aware and savvy consumers is growing as manufacturers fill out their ranges with more EVs.
Electric vehicles (EVs) are transforming and decarbonizing the mobility industry. With millions of new EVs expected on the roads in the near future, this trend will only accelerate in the coming years.
To maximize the benefits of this shift, for both consumers and the environment, it is also essential that we speed up the global roll-out of smart EV charging infrastructure.
