  • Sustainability
  • CarbonCredits
  • chemicals
  • Retail

The European Green Deal is a comprehensive initiative of the European Union to tackle the challenges of climate change and promote a sustainable economy. The key elements include reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030, promoting clean mobility and the circular economy, and preserving biodiversity. The green parties have lost around 20 seats in the European Parliament. What is the general situation regarding sustainability efforts to reduce CO₂ emissions? Carbon Done Right is a Canadian company that trades its own CO₂ emission certificates through reforestation and afforestation to facilitate barter deals with major players like Microsoft and Tesla. They offer satellite monitoring of tradeable areas via a dashboard for all participants. Amazon is also entering the agricultural market. In Southeast Asia, the IT company Axons uses AWS technology to improve local food cultivation. BASF, a well-known conglomerate and chemical giant, is now researching an active ingredient obtained from natural mammalian bacteria capable of producing low-CO₂ substances for the chemical industry.

  • Mining

  • Energy
  • Gold
  • Silver

Renewable energy and digital transformation bring companies like Manuka Resources, Plug Power, and Amazon Web Services into focus.

Cardiol Therapeutics, a clinical-stage life sciences company focusing on therapies for heart inflammation, has secured a renowned clinic to advance its Phase II MAvERIC-Pilot study.

  • Cannabis
  • Healthcare
  • AI

The Berlin-based company Cantourage, which specializes in the distribution of medical cannabis, is experiencing promising growth in the booming medical cannabis market. The global market for the plant's medical use is expected to have reached around USD 12.92 billion since 2021 and is projected to grow to USD 23.97 billion by 2028 at an average CAGR of 13.16%. Cantourage continues to expand its strong international distribution network with its innovative Fast Track Access platform. The Company even has a chance to win in the "Most Innovative Business Strategy" category at the 2023 European Small and Midcap Awards in November. Unlike other medical cannabis producers, Cantourage does not grow its own plants. Just as Uber doesn't own cars and AirBnB doesn't own hotels, Cantourage relies on strong distribution power in Healthcare. Healthcare is also attractive to Amazon again. Through mergers and acquisitions involving an online pharmacy and a thriving network of doctors, the US company is now investing in generative AI beyond ChatGPT. Meanwhile, historic dividend king British American Tobacco faces decline and bans.
