Green investments work.
Green investments have become massive. People have become eco-investors and traditional Investors are investing in the green sector. Why ? Because people understand the importance of supporting green investments. The truth is the daughter of time. We shall all need one day to tell our children the truth about what we’ve done regarding the greatest challenge we are facing today. Keeping the world environmentally safe, clean and sustainable.
Abraham Lincoln said: ” If we could first know where we are, and whither we are tending, we could then better judge what to do, and how to do it.”
There is an enormous need today to find a tool that will help us know where we are and how to navigate. A tool that will allow us to audit, monitor and filter the most urgent projects. A tool that will give innovators the power to find support to bring their creations from dream to reality and for eco-investors to find the best green investments that match their affinity.
The new paradigm must be durable , with purpose and beautiful.
What is this new paradigm we really want? and how is going to be achieved? Well, it is a process organically designed by a number of choices and decisions we will make together. This new paradigm will unleash the desire for people to become eco-investors driven by purpose. Before let’s explore what is still holding people to make the switch.
People often ask why is it still so challenging to find sustainable solutions to invest in? 3 major challenges answer this.
1. Yes, a zillion amazing green project and inventions exist today, but they are scattered and invisible. This kind of “data fragmentation” creates frustration, making it completely unproductive; especially during the digital age where things are supposed to flow.
Besides , many Inventions that could have been and can still be highly positively transformative were simply bought out, patented and disappeared from the public eye. Licensing causes often more harm than protection to promote inventions for the good of all.
2. Sustainability is still surrounded with the misconception that it’s expensive and not cost effective. This is changing more and more today. In fact in some places such as California, this is now the way to go.
3. Lots of folks feel disconnected and have completely lost trust in the traditional system. This system mainly composed of oil and coal multinationals, not to mention the old banking system, abused, cheated and organized public bankruptcy for control and dominance. For that reason, people are now turning away from them and seeking alternative ways to place in their confidence, capital, and future. Green investments are for that reason only, the best investments.
When looking for sustainable solutions and green investments, eco-investors are looking for 3 things. That’s what really drives their behavior.
Sustainable solutions and green investments must be:
1. Good for their Family
2. Good for the Planet
3. Good for their Wallet
This is the probably the most basic law of healthy sustainable living.
Under these considerations, here is how at the Earth Project, we are addressing these needs. We have created an integrative system that combines:
1. A platform dedicated to evergreen energy and sustainable solutions.
2. An Eco-bank of projects, missions, and innovation easy to share and participate.
3. A tool that enables green ethic and responsible investors to be a vector of change.
So why traditional investors should care in investing more in the planet?
A. Spiritual, Moral and Ethical reasons to consider green investments.
We only have one Earth and it is our duty to make it better.
We are now talking about the 6 th extinction. Let’s really tune in, be present to this moment and more aware of what is going on. We need to turn up the volume on our dreams, participation and engagement. After all, we are the only ones standing in our way. You can’t escape a prison, except if you know you are in one. If you want life to change, you have to change.
The paradigm is a control factor in your subconscious mind; it has to deal with how you want to change.
We need to be specific about our dream. Setting S.M.A.R.T. Goals is key( Specific, Measurable, Accountable, Relevant, Time-framed) and with K.P.I ( Key Performance Indicators ) to measure change.
Then sending the message into the universe and letting go.
Ask yourself: What is it that you would really like to experience and feel? Connect to the emotions that feel good.
Setting the intention for something you desire. You can then achieve any goal you desire.
Turn fear into faith. Believing that it is possible. That we all got caught in self-limitations paradigms we were not even aware of. The paradigm that was hurting nature, us and future generation instead of nurturing us.
How can we transcend this paradigm? Each of us has an inner thermostat setting that determines how much love, success, caring we allow ourselves to enjoy. When you exceed your inner thermostat setting, you will often do something to sabotage yourself, causing you to drop back in the old, familiar zone where you feel secure.
How many times have you been aware that you had a very limited tolerance for feeling good and caring more?
How many times in human history have we collectively limited our own capacity of living in peace and harmony with each other creating war and misery all around, destroying nature and ourselves in the process?
How can we extend the period of feeling organically good and enjoying good things coming to us in life?
The state of nature is just a reflection of our own. Surprisingly, very few understand that after ice melting and polar bear disappearing, we are next in line.
Could our species live in expanding waves of peace and prosperity, free of patterns of messing things up when they were going well?
Could we allow things to go well all the time? In all the relationships we entertain with life, others and ourselves.
What is it to be learned right now to change that, and reinvent the planet we want to live in.
A place dedicated to inspiring those around us. A place that expands even more in abundance.
We all got to where we are by making mistakes and then adjust. Catch the drift and correct the shift. This is our biggest drift. We have unbalanced the natural pendulum of things and need to realign our thoughts, ideas, and actions with powerful values driven by purpose.
What do you want to serve? your fear or your wish? Choose what makes you feel good. I know what makes me feel good. It is playing with my children on a clean sandy beach, walking in a forest with beautiful trees, feeling the air and drinking clean fresh water.
Let’s conquer a place together and sit in the vortex of its energy. A place that changes our way of thinking, a place where we think from the result we want to create than the problem we want to solve.
Good things come to those who wait.
We need to watch our programming. Our mental software. You know the kind of “when I will have… I will get”. Change that to what you already have and be thankful. Being grateful for having a beautiful place. This is like oriental philosophy. You never go to a doctor when you feel sick. You go to stay healthy. Let’s practice some Chinese medicine philosophy with our planet.
Let’s plant a seed in our brain that it is possible. This will transform into an image with positive energy, that will vibrate and attract the dream planet we wish to live on.
Here is the secret sauce folks. You cannot get to your dream. You have to come from it.
We all have been living backward due to conditions we have been put in. Challenging the reptilian and traditional thinking will set us free. We all grow up as free Children, we just drift away. Intuition will always beat thinking.
You have to design, visualize and feel your dream with such clarity, that it just manifests.
As we breathe, we are being breathed. And we become living spirits with a license of a higher capacity of being and living.
Let’s move up the ladder of awareness and make sure that this time, it is against the proper wall to climb to a world of infinite possibilities.
Napoleon Hill cracked it right: “What the mind of a man can conceive and believe, he can achieve.”
Believing requires a state of mind so open and generous that you step into your genius. It’s not a place where you hope or wish. It is a place of abundance where you just know it has already been given to you.
No more effort is required to aim high in life, to demand abundance and property, than it is required to accept misery .
Your paradigm controls your perception, your effectiveness, and productivity. Choose a new paradigm with new input points and relations to the world. Choose to define ” Normality ” in a new way.
We are all entrepreneurs and investors. You can invest in a new big screen TV or a sustainable project that nurtures your children’s children. What will you choose? Most of us now have freedom of time and money to invest in ourselves and loved ones. Lots of folks have run out of things to buy and are just bored to death looking to spend their money. While Traditional investors are looking for the next big R.O.I….but Nothing can beat investing in the planet!
Here are the most crucial ethical and spiritual points to consider for green investments.
. Only one Earth
. The Sense of urgency and legacy for family and future generations.
. Social and environmental impact is the new language of change. Success goes to the socially savvy who speaks that language.
. Higher Awareness has created new eco-citizens and eco-investors that want to move towards clean energy forms and self-autonomy.
. Responsible and Ethical investments are needed and looked for by the community.
. Divestment opportunities to reinvest in green and clean ventures are flourishing.
B. Practical and rational reasons for green investments.
. The Earth Project offers a cutting edge integrated system with a super tool that audits, monitors, and filters all natural resources and projects to see the most crucial ones, that need immediate attention.
. The Earth Project goal is to become the integration of ONG’s, Green investment Banks, High Tech Companies and Foundations at the same time to serve in the most effective way.
We are all responsible for where we are today, seeking and integrating the best green investments solutions is the most important thing we can do right now. The domino effect will follow.
. Authorities will make audits and managerial systems transparent and mandatory in the very near future.
. Green companies and green investors / sponsors will have the winds of change in their favor and attract customers easier.
. Green investments are trendy. Take the Tesla effect. It sets a new standard in the automobile. If you can afford a luxury car and you don’t get a Tesla, your car suddenly doesn’t look so cool. Same thing for investments that matter.
. The law of diffusion – innovation statistically shows clearly that the green market is composed of:
2% of innovators
13 % early adopters
34 % of early majority
34 % of late majority
16 % of people who never adapt
In this sinusoid curve, we know that once 15-18 % is reached, ( after early adopters), the market tips into the early majority really fast….and we are in those times where green investments are reaching mass market success. Market timing trumps it all. Catch the wave !
. Mobile banking is raising ( M- Pesa in Africa ).
The circular economy is a departure from linear models, decoupling growth from natural resource consumption.
For decades, supply chains and products flowed in one direction: from manufacturing to consumption to landfill. In a world with limitless resources, this model worked and served as the foundation for competitiveness and growth.
The circular economy boosts competitiveness as companies go for new sources of revenue. How much? $4.5 trillion in the next 15 years.
. Millennials welcome circular economy practices. More than half reported being open to sharing models in particular. Circular models offer unprecedented transparency into customer preferences seeking sustainable solutions that matter.
. Development direction is driven by members and investors just like you. Your suggestions matter and if your ideas are echoed by the community, they will end up in the next version of The Earth Project.
. Fully integrated project management tool
Financial reasons that drive green investments.
. Investors will always ask how big is the market. Well, green investment is a Billion Business market and Green projects are the most lucrative.
. We need a Green Project Bank dedicated to everlasting change. With a self-generated system fed by the whole community that audits, monitors, filters and updates earth projects and resources constantly, investors will be able to see at a glance the most appealing project to them.
. Multi – currency forms and Green currency coins such as Bitcoins are emerging today making easier for people to invest.
They also have their own trade- exchange market. Online banking has really evolved, making it easy then ever.
. Crowdfunding is growing everywhere. First used in the real estate arena, crowdfunding is commonly used now to invest in a wide range of start-ups. So why not in green projects where people are looking to invest in change and in the planet.
. Disbelief in the traditional banking system reinforces people to move away from it. They are now ready for this change and will want to place their money outside the traditional financial system governed and ruled by the oil and coal companies, that are polluting the planet.
. “ Internet giants will not try to replace banks but will disrupt the sector through other services that take consumers away from traditional banks, says analyst firm Forrester.
Add to this the public’s distrust of banks and regulators’ desires to increase competition and you have an opportunity for alternative financial services firms.
She said the future of Google’s financial services lies in the integration and leverage of the firm’s other products to create new customer value that goes beyond payments.
Traditional banks are over expanding to keep up with digital developments. With legacy IT infrastructures weighing them down, many are making mistakes when it comes to mobile and online banking.
Recent system crashes have highlighted weaknesses in banking IT.
Social media is being used by a group of entrepreneurs to create a bank which uses the technology to overcome the cost and complexity of traditional banking while increasing customer trust through an online community.
. Energy Mutual and mutual funds
Alternative energy mutual funds, renewable energy mutual funds, environmental mutual funds, and social responsible mutual funds are booming. People are moving towards these new green investments that offer the safety of investment banking combined to online investing without the cons of investing in stocks.
Green investments must be seriously considered. It’s not a matter of if but when you should take action.
The Earth Project is not a testament. It’s our way to honor nature. We do not think disaster has to strike again before the world turns its attention to the crucial issues the earth faces. We refuse to believe that trends can not be turned around and people’s mind will not change to adapt.
In all the research we have conducted lately, green investments are the best way to support our planet. So they become the best investments that deserve to be promoted; because if one person comes to the realization that we all need to take action to preserve not only for the polar bear, the antarctic region, and our amazing forest but our planet, as an entire living eco-system we will have succeeded.
