This article looks at the best eco-friendly investment opportunities into 2013, and lists the top five possibilities for investors.




Eco-Investments?

At some point in the not too distant future, you have to believe that the Earth will become 100% dependent on natural resources and renewable energy. There have already been huge moves made in terms of the way the global population looks at how they live their lives, and the products they use to ensure a sustainable manner of living is met wherever possible.
With demand for sustainable technologies and products at an all-time high, it is only natural that these provide an exceptional investment opportunity for those with the capital to invest.
What are the top five eco-investments that will lead to high yields into 2013 and beyond?


1. Green Energy

Whether this is in the form of a solar panel company or investment into a business specialising in offshore wind farms, the need for renewable energy sources is going to continue growing in the coming years. Utilities are always a superb investment anyway thanks to a guaranteed level of demand throughout the whole year; however, the use of sustainable energy will continue to become more popular throughout this decade and beyond. Excellent for both short and long-term investment opportunities.


2. Eco-Construction

The construction industry today is unrecognisable from its condition at the turn of the millennium. More aptly, the way the industry operates and the materials used are massively different, too. Eco-friendly building materials are still becoming known and have not yet become what would be considered mainstream. This makes green construction materials an excellent investment opportunity for the long-term.


3. Green Vehicles

Buses and aeroplanes have made huge strides forward in terms of going green, however curiously consumer cars have yet to see a real “wow” innovation that has changed the face of the industry. Whenever one comes about you can be sure there will be massive profits to be made and the motor trade will be changed forever. The big breakthrough could happen next year or in ten years. Whenever it happens, you’d be mad to miss out on it.


4. Food

Remember what we said about things everyone needs? Demand for food is increasing and as such so is the price. Organic and sustainably grown food is still enjoying a surge in popularity, and will continue to do so as global authorities wrestle with how they are going to feed an ever growing global population. Invest as soon as you can.


5. Toys

Whether it is sustainably grown wood or eco-friendly paint, children’s toys is one of the lesser-known and appreciated markets when it comes to environmental credentials. While not as lucrative as some of the other investment opportunities, there is definite scope within the market as many investors try and get on board the more lucrative, high yield markets.
Make green investments a key part of your portfolio into 2013 and beyond, and enjoy the huge returns that are likely to come your way long into the future.
