I am a new member of this forum, and have been trying to do some research to identify a “green” basis of stock identification. The intent is to identify companies which operate in avenues that will benefit from the growing focus on environmental issues (Which some may debate that this is actually getting lesser focus as “Ease of doing business” drives lesser norms in environmental laws). Despite that, i’d like to hear from other members on this topic.
I have identified the following industries (And done some minor investment for purposes of tracking) in:
- Plastic alternatives (like Jute)
- Green energy : Hydel and Wind, I cannot find a good solar (or allied component) pick; Hydel and wind do have other environmental repurcusions, solar would be the better bet esp. in India
- Recycling/ Waste management : VA Tech Wabag , Eco Reco (haven’t tracked it).
- Organic food/agri based: Have not identified any options here!
Do add on any other industries, carbon neutral companies that qualify in this category… Would be great to eventually have a green portfolio.
