ABSTRACT. - Integrating climate change in investments. Climate change, by its possible implications on the businesses viability, it is possible to influence the management of investments. In this paper we explored the investment needs at global level, investment opportunities and the obstacles that prevent investors to focus more on climate change. Companies those are aware of both climate change and climate policy impact on their activities could gain a valuable competitive advantage. Although there is a good knowledge about the investment needs and priorities, short-term target in financial management is found to be the most important obstacle for integrating climate change in investments.
Key words: climate change, investment, economic opportunities, short-term targets, transparency
