Decarbonisation, digitalisation and decentralisation have been identified as the three forces driving the energy transition and making it an attractive growth area for investors on the road to a low-carbon economy. Together, these ‘3 Ds’ represent an electrifying and diverse opportunity set worth an estimated USD 115 trillion.1
Smart and green buildings emitting little CO2 encompass all 3 Ds. The Empire State Building in New York or the Shanghai Tower in China are two familiar examples.
Green buildings have taken off worldwide. By 2030, they are expect to represent a significant low-carbon investment opportunity worth an estimated USD 24.7 trillion in emerging markets alone.2
New government policies, innovation and streams of capital are being directed to upgrading and greening energy systems. We believe some areas are bound to de-risk and new growth stories will emerge.
We are investing in these growth drivers in the BNP Paribas Energy Transition strategy. Be part of the energy system’s multi-decade transformation that will be powering our future and your investment returns.
