The stunning statistics of sustainable investing

The stunning statistics of sustainable investing

24-02-2021 | Stunning statistics
The progress that sustainable investment has made in recent years has been stunning. It has gone from a niche investment style to a mainstream multi-trillion dollar industry. The rise of sustainability has produced some stunning statistics of its own – from wind turbines the size of skyscrapers to plans to create a Great Wall of Africa using trees.

Did you know, for example, that six ships create as much pollution as all the world’s traffic? That three bitcoins generate as much energy as a million credit card transactions? Or that the last time CO2 levels were as high as they are today, wooly mammoths were roaming the Earth?

In January 2017, Robeco decided to collect these amazing facts in a new series called SI’s Stunning Statistics. Every month we found an interesting new number from the world of sustainable investing, and added our own investment angle to it. Using the same format for each one, we asked three questions: What has happened? Why is it important? What does it mean for investors?

The best articles from this series are now available in a stunning little booklet.
