Looks like the planet is finally galvanizing an army to fight the war with global warming - from Wall Street to Hollywood! Rarely do you see celebrities using their influence to shape more than box office ratings. Leonardo Di Caprio continues to fight for our planet at Davos: "“Our planet cannot be saved unless we leave fossil fuels in the ground where they belong,”DiCaprio said. “Twenty years ago, we described this problem as an addiction. Today, we possess the means to end this reliance." In my opinion, more importantly perhaps we see corporates waking up to see the business case for investing in climate resilience. The article indicates Generate Electric proposing Green Bonds as potential game changes to scale up clean energy solutions and green technologies. Innovative financial instruments can definitely play a huge role in harnessing the power of capital markets for good.
