Low-Carbon Transition Could Free Up Trillions of Investment Dollars

The low-carbon transition could make trillions of dollars available other purposes over the next 20 years, according to two background papers produced for the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate [1].

“With the right policy choices, over the next 20 years governments can achieve the emissions reductions necessary for a safer, more stable climate and free up trillions for investment in other parts of the economy,” said David Nelson, Senior Director of the Climate Policy Initiative, which released the reports this week. “This is even before taking into account the environmental and health benefits of reducing emissions.” (h/t to The Energy Mix subscriber Gary Martin for pointing us to this story)
