Private Sector Green Investments Total $8.1 Trillion

There’s yet another measure of the rapid rise of green investments made by the private sector.

That is a larger sum than many have suspected. Published since 2009 by Ethical Markets Media, the Scoreboard tracks private money shifting from traditional investments into sustainable investing. The aggregated total is traced by the organization’s Certified B Corporation’s team of experts and a global advisory board. Says Ethical Market CEO Dr. Hazel Henderson, “The green economy is growing faster than anyone realizes.” Download the full (free) report here.
