A New Climate for Sustainable Investment

New writing… My latest piece for Real Views is now live, looking at how attitudes towards sustainability metrics have changed amongst the global investment community.

Clean and green energy is clearly becoming increasingly attractive to investors and fund managers as they decarbonise and derisk their portfolios, from stocks and shares, to assets and acquisitions. As a result, new resilience and responsibility metrics can now be seen influencing corporate clients, as well as real estate deals and development.

This brief ‘listicle’ identifies 5 key drivers behind these recent and ongoing shifts in perception, principle and practice that are impacting markets worldwide and together helping create ‘A new climate for sustainable investment’.

‘Public Sector Technology’ in The Times

pstNew writing… Pleased to say I have had another piece published in The Times newspaper, as part of a special report on Public Sector Technology by Raconteur. It looks at the emergence of Bristol as a leading advocate and achiever in smart city thinking and doing, tacking challenges and pioneering solutions:

‘Why Bristol’s a city of the future’.

There is also a short footnote box-out (please scroll down) on smart traffic management in the city where cycles outnumber cars – ‘Copenhagen’s Intelligent Infrastucture’.

The full 16-page Public Sector Technology report is available to view/download here.
