Jay Owen Green Prosperity

Investing at least $1 trillion per year until 2020 could lead from the fossil-fueled industrial era to a technologically advanced solar age based on ethical principles of equity, efficiency, biomimicry and earth systems science, according to the mid-year update to the Green Transition Inflection Point: Green Transition Scoreboard 2013 Report.

As of July 2013, the Green Transition Scoreboard (GTS), which tracks private sustainability investments since 2007, jumped to $5.2 trillion from $4.1 trillion reported in February. To date, investments are well on the way to the $10 trillion by 2020 mark.
