About this book

Introduction

Michael Migendt explains the role of alternative investments in
supporting the growth of a sustainable economy and recognizes levers
that policy makers, managers and entrepreneurs could use for further
accelerating green innovation through finance. He focuses on specific
examples of alternative investments into green industries, companies,
projects, and infrastructure, covering the developments along the
innovation chain. Especially the acceleration of green technologies and
the in this context occurring interrelations between the three areas of
finance, innovation, and policy are key to this work.
