A green investment is an investment in a project that promotes and supports the health of the environment whilst providing returns for investors. Types of investments would include ecologically sound products, services or technologies; companies with environmentally friendly practices or goals; or companies that counteract negative effects on the environment.
Over the last decade, green entrepreneurs have been especially interested in developing alternative forms of energy—bio fuels, solar panelling and wind-powered generators. However, recently, investors are paying more attention to land resources and investing in environmentally friendly industries that support small and large communities, like agricultural farms that feed and employ villages without a viable industry and sustainable forests that supply localized regions with timber, while soaking up massive amounts of carbon dioxide and pollutants.
Another increasing popular green investment in recent years has been projects specifically targeted towards investing in bamboo. The versatility of bamboo as a construction material allied to the speed with which it can be grown and harvested in numerous regions across the world mean that it is one of the best examples of a sustainable green investment.Bamboo investment is taking an ever greater prominence within the socially responsible investment market and Emerald Knight is at the forefront of the drive to bring the best bamboo investment projects to market.

A good green investment should also actively be adapting its business model in order to gain a competitive edge against ecological constraints, like using sustainable products, eco-friendly transportation, local resources and regional distribution. When investing in a green start-up, companies should show strong ethical practices, directed environmental goals and promise of high long-term returns.
