A green investment is a financial investment that promotes and supports the health of the environment. These types of investments 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 paneling 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.
A good green investment should be also be actively adapting its business model 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 startup, companies should show strong ethical practices, directed environmental goals and promise of high long-term returns.
