Deutsche Bank Asset Management releases new climate research

MarketWatch: Deutsche Asset Management (DeAM) today published a research paper arguing that the accelerating pace of global warming will force governments to invest more heavily in climate change mitigation and adaptation despite the financial setbacks of the current market crash. "Investing in Climate Change 2009 -- Necessity and Opportunity in Turbulent Times," authored by DeAM's Global Climate Change Investment Research team, provides a detailed analytical framework for understanding the opportunities for investing in climate change. But it also says that an economic downturn offers governments across the developed world a prime opportunity to boost their spending on 'green' infrastructure as a stimulus to avoid severe recession.

According to Mark Fulton, DeAM's Global Head of Climate Change Investment Research, "The current crisis is making the necessity of tackling climate change an opportunity to stimulate growth through investment opportunities." He adds, "Encouraging investment in renewable energy is a key focus. Energy efficiency technologies are obviously highly desirable in economies facing recession. Infrastructure stimulus can be tied directly to climate-sensitive sectors such as power grids, water, buildings, and public transport, which present a vast field for the creation of new technologies and jobs. Governments have before them a historic opportunity to 'climate proof' their economies' as they upgrade infrastructure as a core response to any economic downturn."
