Welcome to the third episode of our Race To Zero series!
In this episode, we show you the money. Finance is an absolutely crucial factor in accelerating our world towards a Net-Zero future, and with less than 9 years left to halve our global emissions and current investments and markets spiraling towards catastrophic risk, it’s going to take every financial lever we have to shift the global economy to a sustainable, equitable, and just system.
On topics of investment, divestment, engagement, and tropical carbon pricing, you’ll hear from:
Mark Carney, UN Special Envoy for Climate Action and Finance and Prime Minister Johnson’s Finance Adviser for COP26
Amal-Lee Amin, Director of Climate Change at CDC and Senior Advisor to the UK COP26 Unit
Thomas Di Napoli, New York State Comptroller
Carlos Manuel Rodriguez, CEO and Chairperson of the Global Environment Facility
Kristalina Georgieva, Managing Director, IMF
And of course our good friend,
Nigel Topping, High Level Climate Action Champion for COP26
The race is on! Buckle up and hit play.
Christiana + Tom’s book ‘The Future We Choose’ is available now!
