That $3.07 trillion represents a huge pool of money that is being invested in companies that have been found to be sustainable.

As Al Gore said, “We believe that we are at the early stages of a technology-led sustainability revolution, which has the scale of the industrial revolution, and the pace of the digital revolution.”
