Alternative investment advisers Alternative Asset Analysis have announced new research showing that the global green economy was already worth £3.2 trillion by 2008/2009 - which should prompt more interest in alternative and ethical investments.

Boston, MA, October 24, 2011 - The global green economy was already worth £3.2 trillion by 2008/2009, according to new research. This should prompt more interest in alternative and ethical investments, according Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA).

The alternative investment advocacy group has responded to the findings from the UK government-sponsored research by Innovas Solutions. The findings of the investigation concluded that the renewable energy sector alone is valued at around £940 billion, while alternative fuels are worth £1.45 trillion.

“The money to be made from investing in green projects is enormous,” stated AAA’s analysis partner Anthony Johnson. AAA is a supporter of green investments and backs sustainable forestry projects, such as those run by firms like Greenwood Management in Brazil, and impact investment opportunities that help provide vital funding for social projects in the developing world.

AAA claim that alternative ethical investments are becoming increasingly attractive to people for several reasons. They are becoming more aware of their environment and the need to invest in the green economy to protect the environment and reduce climate change, while also being acutely aware of the volatility of more traditional assets, such as stocks and shares.

The research helped to remind environmentalists of the major causes of climate change, finding that the production of fossil fuels accounts for the majority of carbon emissions, while providing between 81 and 90 per cent of the world’s energy needs.

Mr Johnson added, “It’s clear that we all still have along way to go to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. In the meantime, investing in forestry projects that reduce deforestation can help to control carbon emissions thanks to the carbon sequestration value of forests.”

Investing in forestry can also help communities reap the rewards available through carbon trading and the wider carbon market.
