BNP Paribas AM: Clearing the air

The world’s two most populated countries, China and India, are also two of the worst air polluters. However, China is already using central government policy to drive through the transition to a cleaner energy balance, although it needs to extend its efforts beyond the industrial Northeast. Meanwhile, unlike China’s centralised approach, India’s fractured governmental structure will make the transition tougher, not least given the number of coal jobs in question.

China and India’s push to transition towards cleaner energy solutions – including the building of cleaner energy infrastructure, supply and distribution networks – indicate compelling investment opportunities for companies offering clean-air products and services.

Read our expert’s explanation of the investment opportunities arising from the progress being made in China and India in their efforts to reduce chronic air pollution and transition towards a cleaner energy mix.
