Green investment and coordination failure: An investors' perspective

Category: News

 

The goal to keep global warming well below 2°C can only be achieved if private investors shift capital from brown to green infrastructures and technologies. In this working paper, we present a game-theoretic perspective on the transition from brown to green growth. We perceive investment for mitigation as a coordination problem of selecting among multiple equilibria. We discuss how uncertainty in such a "green investment game" could be reduced in order to coordinate actors on the Pareto-superior equilibrium.
