Jochen Spuck / Econsight and Alex Posth / ZHAW IWA: Thematic Investing in GreenTech: Patent-data-driven Identification of Green Technology Trends and Sustainable Investment Opportunities, IWA

GreenTech is the single-most important enabler to unlock the technological transformation and innovation potential necessary for the change towards a more sustainable economy and society. By now, it has been recognized that ESG compliance and more sustainability will not be realized by economization only; rather, ESG-compliant investing and policy design is needed to creatively reshape entire industries and proactively advance this transformation.

We will discuss how AI-supported analysis of patent data helps to identify up-and-coming trends in green technologies, how maps of GreenTech can provide guidance for policy makers and regulators, and how essential technology trends can be mapped to thematic investment themes.
