The climate case for investing in EMD

Climate standards and policies in emerging markets are, on a whole, lagging many developed markets. However, this is not a reason not to invest. Emerging markets are crucial to the low carbon transition, and they are also where many of the biggest climate opportunities can be found. For investors looking to make a climate impact, emerging markets are not to be ignored.
