sustainability.

The next economic revolution has begun. At Lombard Odier, we believe sustainability will drive returns in the next three to five years and beyond. Our current operating model is unsustainable. It simply has to change, and the time is now. This global shift is already transforming our economies and the companies that drive them. And it is changing how we invest. This is The Sustainability Revolution. The largest investment opportunity in history.

    How can long-haul transport lower its carbon footprint?

    Transportation is a significant culprit when it comes to carbon emissions. We must find a way to achieve net zero and reduce emissions – not just from passenger vehicles but also from long haul and heavy-duty transport. New technologies, evolving government frameworks and changing consumer behaviours will help realise a circular, lean, inclusive and clean economic (CLIC) model.

    How automation will allow us to move around more easily

    The way we get around is fundamental to how we live. Yet we must find a way to do so that is not to the detriment of our environment and society. Automated cars, robo-taxis and increased connectivity may lead the way to reduced carbon emissions, improved efficiency and more resilience in the transport industry.
