Adding Environmental Risk to the Financial Equation

…from the Ethiopian Review

“Despite projections, many financial analysts ignore the risks and opportunities associated with environmental trends. ENVEST seeks to change this.

“In its upcoming report on the Asian Power sector, ENVEST uses geographical information systems (GIS) maps that show the intensity of water scarcity in certain geographic areas overlaid with locations of current and planned power generating facilities. The mapping shows that over half of existing and planned capacity for major power companies, representing 74GW, is located in areas that are already considered water scarce or stressed.”
