In honor of Earth Day which took place last Friday, it’s time to consider the environment as a massive sector for growth in the future. When we think about investing in the environment, most investors will likely think about renewable energy sources like wind, solar, and electricity. They’re not wrong, but there are other facets of the environment that are worth looking into.
Things like renewable energy sources reduce carbon emissions and will help reduce pollution, all of which have an impact on things like global warming. The Earth is a fragile ecosystem, and while industrial advancements have proven to benefit mankind, it has also been detrimental to our natural resources. As an investor, if you are bullish on the planet and human life, then you might want to add some of these stocks to your radar.
Even though it trades on the OTC markets, Vestas is actually one of the largest wind energy companies in the world. The company was founded in 1945 and is headquartered out of Denmark. Vestas has wind energy operations around the world, including in key markets like China, the UK, Germany, and the US. If you want a sustainable company, Vesta is the one for you. In 2021, it ranked as the top sustainable company in the world according to the Corporate Knights Global 100 rankings. It is also targeting zero-waste wind turbines in operation by 2040. Capturing wind energy at both onshore offshore wind farms will be a crucial way to harness energy moving forward. As long as we need power, Vestas will be a great stock to invest in.
Cleanvision is a company that is making a difference in some of the most polluted oceans in the world. The company’s subsidiary, Clean Seas, has established a pilot pyrolysis plant in Hyderabad, India. The basic concept behind the plant is that it takes plastic that has been collected from the oceans and is able to convert that into a reusable energy source. The pyrolysis process is able to turn these pieces of plastic into ultra–low sulfur diesel, char, and its patented AquaH Hydrogen-based fuel. Since it launched its pilot project in India in March, the company has made partnerships with several other local governments including in Morocco, Sri Lanka, and Puerto Rico. Plastic waste is a global problem, and Clean Seas is aiming to solve this issue one bottle at a time.
Iqstel is a well diversified tech company that has segments that operate in a wide variety of sectors. One of these is its electric vehicle line, which focuses on electric motorcycles and scooters. Iqstel has made mainstream headlines with its Fintech payment system that has partnered with both Visa (NYSE:V) and Mastercard (NYSE:MA). It has also been involved in telecom services and blockchain technology. The electric motorcycle and scooter products are heavily sought after in many markets around the world. While most investors assume that electric vehicles like Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) will rule the roads in the future, a great majority of the world that lives in lower socioeconomic markets ride motorcycles. The company is already receiving great interest from firms in Africa and Latin America, and could lead the way in what is a mostly uncharted market so far. To cap things off, Iqstel anticipates uplisting to the NASDAQ later this year, so this could be one of the last chances to get shares at these discounted prices.
