Power Factor: Institutional Investors’ Policy Priorities Can Bring Energy Efficiency to Scale

Research shows climate change could impose a multi-trillion dollar burden on the global economy and contribute ten percent of overall risk within institutional investment portfolios.

Energy efficiency offers one such opportunity for institutional investors to manage the risks of climate change while earning a competitive rate of return on their investment.
