Boston, MA, USA, December 31, 2012 — UN leader, Ban Ki-moon, has praised the Chinese government for trying its best to invest in green energy sources, but added that developed countries should lead the way on the fight against climate change. The statement has attracted praise from Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA), which endorses green investments at any level.
Speaking after the climate change conference in Doha on 4 December, the UN secretary general, stated, “The Chinese Government has been making smart investments with the aim of diversifying their energy sources to mitigate and adapt according to their own national government policies. This is highly commendable.”
He added that other growth countries, such as India, Brazil and South Africa, should also be doing their bit to ensure that they invest in green energy generation. AAA’s analysis partner, Anthony Johnson, explained that Brazil is already looking at green sources of energy and is supporting other eco-friendly moves like the REDD+ scheme to reduce deforestation.
“The Brazilian government is investing in things like sustainable timber plantations to help generate alternative energy sources and sources of charcoal, which is used in the booming steel industry in Brazil.”
Ban Ki-moon continued to speak about the climate change issue, stating that the developed world needs to lead the way in green investments, because, they have the most resources and modern technologies.
“Rich countries should take the lead and the U.S. should play a very important role,” he added.
AAA is an alternative investment advocacy group that encourages individuals to make ethical, alternative investment choices, choosing asset classes like sustainable timberland, agricultural land and green energy.
“Many people are looking for a different way to invest following the economic crash and the resulting stock market volatility,” added Mr Johnson. Timberland plantations, such as those run by Greenwood Management and other similar firms in Brazil can offer an ethical and profitable option.
