As extreme weather events continue to occur with increased frequency, the necessity to transform the way we consume energy has taken on significant urgency. The approaches to decarbonizing will vary across sectors, but government policies and the investment community are driving change. The global carbon transformation is shaping up to be a multi-decade, secular phenomenon. It exists at the intersection of three powerful themes: climate commitment, energy security, and economic growth.

In this paper, Roger Mortimer, Portfolio Manager of KraneShares Global Carbon Transformation ETF (Ticker: KGHG), examines the nature of the problem; policy response and market forces at work; industries affected; technologies key to decarbonization; the impact of money flows; and the scope of the investment opportunity. The global carbon transformation could present one of the most disruptive and important investment opportunities of our lives. For investors, an understanding of the risks and opportunities arising from the global carbon transformation is essential.
