            I think that Blackstone should be given a chance and be monitored closely .Though them having a bad image as seen from the past ,you could find that they have decided to transition from fossil fuel .Lets give them a chance and see

              This is just another type of greenwashing. Their action should be put to light to confirm if they really are investing in renewables.

                      Blackstone has previously been a major investor in fossil fuels, and unless they are changing tune, I believe they still have stakes in the oil and gas industries. They say they are investing in renewables, but a large part of their portfolio is tied up in fossil fuels. https://africa.businessinsider.com/news/the-messy-high-stakes-world-of-private-equitys-fossil-fuel-dilemma/g4kg9g1
