As CEO of Libra Project, I firmly believe that Climate change represents the biggest man-made threat to humanity the world faces. As a planet we need to rapidly migrate our consumption of energy to carbon being carbon neutral quicker n governments are saying. We are on the road to self-destruction and were as governments look at the next voting cycle we all need to be looking at the longer effects climate change will have on all of us. The only way to fix climate change is if every person and every company on the planet does their bit and becomes mindful of their own carbon footprint. We cannot wait for the government to assign some of their budget to this. As individuals, we all have a say over how our investments, savings and pensions are made. We can connote to use investment vehicles that support the old industries to make a profit, or we can choose to support the companies that channel investment directly into renewable energy projects that are focused to run the most efficient business offset the most CO2 and at the same time have the most social impact.
CEO's of corporations need to also look at their businesses and see how they can, firstly reduce the waste of the business and secondly once they have that to a minimum then how to offset the remainder of their companies CO2 footprint.
Libra Project was designed as a company to channel impact investment direct into impact renewable energy, whilst having the control over the projects to ensure impact is being delivered. This differs dramatically to a fund, as a fund has absolutely no control over the impact. By managing the projects ourselves we can ensure the impact KPIs are delivered and reported live through our ecosystem back to the Investor. This is truly ground-breaking for impact investors. To see live data of the effect their investment is having.
