Investing in a sustainable world: why GREEN is the new color of money on Wall Street

Book Cover

Pub. Date:
Kiernan, head of a sustainability research firm, has written this guide for investors who want to explore “green” markets but lack the practical experience needed to determine which technologies will become successful. The author explains how most experts have been reluctant to recommend sustainable investments due to radical changes in these trends, and he outlines a strategy that will remove the middleman and allow readers to make decisions that will yield substantial dividends. By analyzing the natural forces (climate change, pollution, population growths and human rights) that affect the green industry, this book provides an investment “roadmap” that follows the lead of successful money managers, consultants and research firms.
