Major economies around the world are gradually shifting focus from non-renewable resources to sustainable and green options. This transition, while bound to take time and billions of dollars, has already triggered a change in investor perception as more and more people are showing interest in green energy and tech stocks. NextEra Energy claims to be one of the world's largest producer of wind and solar energy. It reportedly serves at least five million customers in Florida and the US.
The clean energy company was named by Fortune as among the top 20 companies in the world for innovation. Albermarle Corporation is said to be one of the world’s top firms in terms of producing lithium, which it does from its own assets in the US and Chile. Albermarle's operation in Chile is reportedly one of the lowest-cost lithium sources on the planet.
On April 19th, Canada Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland said while presenting the federal budget that the government will spend 17 billion Canadian dollars in helping bring about a cleaner economy. This move is expected to help companies engaged in such sustainable energy-focused activities.
