Climate change is one of, if not the, biggest challenges we face as a species. That is why ‘Climate Change’ is one of our themes.
We believe, if we invest in the right companies, together we can help create a shift in global markets and be a part of the solution for climate change. Whilst simultaneously getting a return on our investment and helping us save for the long-term.
“There's one issue that will define the contours of this century more dramatically than any other, and that is the urgent and growing threat of a changing climate”
- Barack Obama
What type of companies will I be invested in?
As a planet, we need to be less reliant on Carbon and the disastrous effects CO2 is having on the environment. Here at tickr, we are investing in companies that are disrupting the industry or have a low carbon footprint. Here are a few examples of the organisations we invest in: Tesla Motors, NextEra energy INC, Iberdola, among hundreds of others.
We invest in companies from around the world that help bring clean drinking water to people around the world. A notable example is Xylem. Xylem was ranked 7th in Fortune’s ‘Change the World’ list. This list names the top fifty companies in the world that “use the profit motive to help the planet and tackle social problems”. Other companies in this theme include American Water, Geberit AG and Idex Corp.
The global population set to reach 10 billion by 2020, we need to address the growing need for renewable energy. We invest in companies like Verbund AG, Covanta Holding Corp and Vestas Wind systems, to help ensure the energy needs of the future are met in a clean and sustainable way.
