Climate friendly investments: Minister Röttgen presented the opening address at the Climate and Finance Action Week

From 25 – 31 January 2010, the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) hosted for the first time the “Climate and Finance Action Week” in cooperation with scientific partner adelphi and renowned financial service providers in Germany


The kick-off to the event series, which was held on the 25 January 2010 at the KfW Banking Group in Frankfurt am Main, set the tone for the conference. Federal Environment Minister, Dr. Norbert Röttgen, clearly stated in his opening address that “climate protection is closely linked to innovation and economic modernisation strategies for Germany.” The study, prepared by adelphi and INrate, demonstrates climate-friendly, potential capital investments by comparing similar rates of return to greenhouse gas emissions that average about 42 percent lower than the conventional products. Every private investor should take the opportunity to investment in climate protection.
