Here are some comments by GE’s Ecomagination VP, Mark Vachon made at the Investor Summit on Climate Risk and Energy Solutions. He emphasizes the importance of sustainability, not only as a competitive advantage but as a matter of corporate relevance.
“Companies that don’t get this really risk becoming irrelevant,” says GE Ecoimagination VP Mark Vachon in this highlight video reel from the Ceres investor summit held at the UN’s headquarters in New York City.
The consensus among the speakers featured in the video is that investing with climate change in mind can mean investing in renewable energy projects with “bond-like” stable returns. It also means considering climate change risks like erosion and crop impacts.
