The TSXV-listed environmentally friendly stocks on our list should benefit from the building momentum in sustainable investing
SmallCapPower | March 6, 2020: Environmentally Sustainable investing has been on the rise, fuelled by Blackrock’s, the largest asset manager in the world, pledge to double its environmentally friendly ETF offerings by the end of 2021. Environmentally sustainable investing is highlighted by climate change, an issue that many countries are starting to take more seriously. Agreements such as the Paris Accord, which to this date has been ratified by 185 parties, are helping to initiate the change to a greener world. Emphasized by Greta Thunberg, about 72% of Generation Z say they are willing to pay more for products and services offered by companies committed to a positive environmental impact, thus green technology stocks have lucrative market potential. Today we have selected three Canada-listed environmentally friendly stocks that we think have great growth prospects.
