If you know of any environmental market stock that is not listed here and should be, please let us know by leaving a comment. Also for stocks in the list that you think should be removed.
I would add Hannon Armstrong Sustainable Infrastructure (ticker HASI) to the list. It is not exactly a pure play, but its goals, structure, and exposures overlap the categorization.
Interesting thought, Gary. HASI has always been hard to categorize. I’ll do it.
