Q4 2021 Market Update – Industrials & Manufacturing
Carbon Capture: The Future or a False Start?
Environmental, Social, and Governance (“ESG”) investing has established itself as a serious investing niche, with global sustainability fund assets almost doubling over the past six months through September to $3.9T. Encouraged by regulators worldwide eager to show their commitment to tackling wide-ranging equality and environmental issues, investors and companies alike are investing and marketing themselves as responsible and sustainable corporate citizens. Enter carbon capture, while high hopes for CCUS (Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage) technologies over the past decade have been a litany of false-starts and delays, this time may be different.
In this newsletter, we will demonstrate the impact of renewed investment and focus on CCUS applications for key Industrials and Manufacturing sectors and how the related M&A market has performed in the Q4 2021.
