In his yearly message to investors, Larry Fink, the CEO of investment firm BlackRock, shared his views on the upcoming surge of groundbreaking “Unicorn” companies. To clarify, a “unicorn” refers to a start-up that achieves a valuation of $1 billion before going public. Fink believes that the next big wave will be in green energy.

“The next 1,000 unicorns won’t be search engines or social media platforms, but rather sustainable, scalable innovators – start-ups that focus on aiding the world in decarbonization and making the shift towards cleaner energy affordable for all consumers,” Fink stated.

He added, “Engineers and scientists are tirelessly working on ways to decarbonize vital sectors like cement, steel, plastics, transportation, agriculture, and more. I am convinced that the global shift towards decarbonization will present unparalleled investment opportunities.”

The sustainable technology sector has already attracted around $4 trillion in investments. Coupled with the growing societal consensus on the necessity of cleaner energy to combat climate change, it’s evident that the business world is heading in a green direction.

“We prioritize sustainability not merely as environmentalists, but as capitalists and caretakers of our clients’ financial interests,” Fink emphasized.

Despite Fink’s positive outlook on the green energy industry, the transition is expected to be a slow and challenging process. Fossil fuels are deeply embedded in the global economy, and convincing stakeholders to phase them out and executing this transition will require considerable time.

“It’s a gradual journey. We must transition from conventional ‘brown’ practices to environmentally-friendly ‘green’ alternatives,” Fink affirmed.
