The aim of `The Green Investing Handbook' by Nick Hanna is to provide a sensible and logical baseline to this burgeoning industry. The whole book is set out in a logical and easy to follow manner, which is no mean feat considering the information that is being transmitted here.
The book itself is spilt in to four main sections "How to Invest, Where to Invest, Directory of green companies, Resources". In Part 2 there is further sub-division into the ten main areas of environmental services and technology, to give the reader a decent understanding of what investment in these areas entails, as well as a little bit of history of that part of the green industry. The directory in Part 3 provides a generous list of companies involved in green manufacture, split in a logical industry way to aid the location of a suitable set of contacts.
There is much to praise this book; the logical nature of its formatting, which aids the reader in finding the information that he wants; the sub-division of the industries that are potential investment points, and finally, the overall feeling that this book provides a complete range of possibilities. There is a proviso in the start of the book that states that all the information can change, and this is true given the rapid nature of industrial development in the modern world.
However, anyone considering investing or researching the green manufacturing industry could do a lot worse than use this book as their `bible'. Mr Hanna has written a handbook that will be part of the standard for a long time.
You do not have to be an enthusiast for ethical investment to benefit from the Green Investing Handbook although it will obviously appeal most to those who care about the planet and want to do their bit.
It explains how to build a green portfolio, examining how to profit from the trend towards reducing carbon emissions. It looks at the different types of power generation, energy saving buildings, power usage and so on with detailed reviews of a wide range of companies across the globe that can claim to be part of the green revolution.
Whether you want to choose your own investments or pick a green fund, this book is packed with useful advice and information laid out logically and tidily. You can read it from cover to cover or pick out the bits you are most interested in. You will not find a more comprehensive guide to green investing and how to profit from safeguarding the earth's future.
New markets are emerging all the time and if you want to make sure that you're picking the right green investment and also want to make sure that it is a true green investment then buy this book. I must admit i thought i'd know a lot of what this book was going to cover but i was proved wrong and it has really made me look harder into what could be a possible green investment. Also, investments are sometimes hard to understand if you're a newbie to this world. This book breaks them down an explains clearly what choices you have and how to invest.
Thoroughly recommended and a definite must for any potential green investors. Well done and thank you.
So in a nutshell if you're looking for a book like i was that will help to guide you on how to identify a green investment, where to start and how to invest then this is the book for you.
An excellent resource for those of us who want to put our money into investments which make a positive difference!
