Investing EUR 5 trillion to reach climate neutrality – a surmountable challenge
Germany will have to invest around EUR 5 trillion to achieve climate neutrality by the middle of the century. This is the finding of a study conducted by KfW Research. It is an ambitious goal but falls into perspective when we take into account that much of it involves investments that are necessary anyway and now need to move towards a sustainable path. In order for us to meet this challenge, public investment funds must be used in a targeted manner and complementary private investment must be mobilised. If we succeed, we have the opportunity to make Germany more competitive and prosperous and enable it to emerge stronger from the transition to climate neutrality.
