    Bezos Earth Fund director on how to drive climate, nature action

    In this episode of the ESG Insider podcast, we talk with Paul Bodnar, Director of Sustainable Finance, Industry and Diplomacy at the Bezos Earth Fund, about solving the finance gap for climate and nature.  

    The Bezos Earth Fund was created in 2020 with a $10 billion commitment from Jeff Bezos, founder of e-commerce giant Amazon. The fund aims to disperse that $10 billion in grants by 2030 to fight climate change and protect nature.  

    Paul talked to us on the sidelines of the GreenFin conference in New York about how to increase innovation and investments in nature, food systems, and climate change.  

    "What really drives fast, deep and broad change in the global economy is markets. Finance, technology, business model innovation — those things spread like wildfire. And so we have to activate those vectors in service of climate action," Paul says.

    Why climate scientists are forecasting extremely active 2024 hurricane season

    Why climate scientists are forecasting extremely active 2024 hurricane season

    June brings the start of the Atlantic hurricane season, and in this episode of the ESG Insider podcast we explore why 2024 is expected to be extremely active — "possibly historically" active, says today’s guest, Tim Hall. 

    Tim is a Senior Climate Scientist at S&P Global Sustainable1, where his team has developed a hurricane forecasting model that projects over 14 hurricanes and eight major hurricanes this season. In the episode, Tim explains his near-term forecast and how climate change is leading to more intense storms over the longer term. As we hear in the episode, this has big implications for many stakeholders, from homeowners and insurers to financial institutions and central banks, which are increasingly turning to climate modeling and climate stress test testing to understand future risks.  

    Tim also outlines how science and technology are fast evolving to help stakeholders make better-informed decisions to adapt and prepare for climate change.    

    “It's a very interesting time of rapid change in the field — both in the technology and what we can forecast and in what detail, and also the sophistication and expectations of the stakeholders," Tim says.

    What’s ahead as global plastic treaty talks come down to the wire

    What’s ahead as global plastic treaty talks come down to the wire

    In this episode of the ESG Insider podcast, we explore the latest developments in international efforts to reach a global treaty on plastic pollution. 

    In late April, more than 170 countries gathered in Ottawa, Canada, to negotiate a legally binding instrument on plastic pollution with a view to agreeing on a global treaty by the end of 2024. The countries aim to reach a deal in the next gathering slated to take place Nov. 25 through Dec. 1 in Busan, South Korea.  

    Today we’re covering the outcome of the recent Ottawa treaty talks, the issues that remain to be hashed out, and what needs to happen between now and the final round of negotiations.   

    We talk with Erin Simon, Vice President and Head of Plastic Waste and Business at international conservation organization WWF, which together with The Ellen MacArthur Foundation convened the Business Coalition for a Global Plastics Treaty. Erin tells us that countries have a lot of details left to work out in ad hoc meetings in the coming months and are effectively "pulling an all-nighter" between now and Busan.

    To understand how one big company that uses plastics in its products is approaching this topic, we speak to Darci Vetter, Senior Vice President and Head of Global Public Policy at food, snack and beverage company PepsiCo, which is part of the Business Coalition for a Global Plastics Treaty.

    "We definitely want to see those product design requirements, those common definitions, the principles, and as much specificity around extended producer responsibility and waste management — those are very important to us, and global rules that can set the stage for scalability within markets are critical," Darci tells us. 

    At the same time, "we know that the countries around the table are starting from very, very different places," she says. "So there will need to be some of that flexibility." 

    We also talk with Stewart Harris, Senior Director of Global Plastics Policy at the trade group American Chemistry Council. Stewart says that one outstanding question for governments is which measures are going to be legally binding and which will be voluntary.

    Women in Leadership: Los Angeles bank CEO on serving diverse communities

    Women in Leadership: Los Angeles bank CEO on serving diverse communities

    Today we bring you the latest installment in our ‘Women in Leadership’ series of the ESG Insider podcast, featuring interviews with women CEOs and leaders from around the world. 

    In this episode, we talk with Bonnie Lee, President and CEO of Hanmi Financial Corporation and Hanmi Bank, a Los Angeles-based community bank established in 1982 to serve the Korean American immigrant community and now serving multi-ethnic communities through its network of branches and loan production offices. 

    Bonnie tells us how her interest in banking began when she watched her parents apply for a small business loan, and how she has learned from the successes and mistakes of a dozen different CEOs she has worked under during her career. 

    She says empathy plays an important role in her leadership style — because ultimately, "banking is really a people business."  

    Bonnie also explains Hanmi's approach to diversity, and how the bank’s workforce mirrors the diversity of the markets where it operates. "Throughout the 42-year history, the culture and our platform has [been] built to represent the market that we serve," she says.

    How Singapore-based investment firm Temasek is mobilizing green capital for emerging markets

    How Singapore-based investment firm Temasek is mobilizing green capital for emerging markets

    In this week’s episode of the ESG Insider podcast we sit down with Steve Howard, Vice Chair of Sustainability for Singapore-based Temasek, a global investment firm with a net portfolio value of $287 billion as of March 31, 2023. 

    Steve was a keynote speaker at the annual S&P Global Sustainable1 Summit in London May 8. In an interview on the sidelines of the event, he explains the green investment opportunities and challenges Temasek sees in emerging markets.  

    "We've got huge need with 700 million people or so lacking energy access," Steve says. "There's an imperative to help people get out of poverty, have really the resilience in their life of access to energy and cooling and mobility and secure food supplies ... now the technology is there, so we need to mobilize more capital."

    How AI could solve the data challenge for climate, nature and the energy transition

    How AI could solve the data challenge for climate, nature and the energy transition

    In this week's episode of the ESG Insider podcast, we bring you coverage of the annual S&P Global Sustainable1 Summit held in London on May 8.
     
    We sit down with panelists on the sidelines of the event to discuss key conference themes, including data challenges related to climate, nature and the energy transition; the role that technology and innovation can play in addressing these challenges and the potentially transformative role of AI; and the challenge of sustaining economic growth in emerging markets while accelerating the transition. 
     
    "We don't have enough actual innovation, we don't actually have enough quantum of finance going into developing countries," says Sagarika Chatterjee, Climate Finance Director and Finance Lead for the UN Climate Change High-Level Champions. "This is absolutely critical because this is where a lot of the emissions is going to come from. We can't change the past and the energy system of the past, but we can try to change the carbon that we have in future.” 
     
    For emerging markets and developing countries, "the lack of data is the biggest problem," says Budha Bhattacharya, Head of Systematic Research at Lombard Odier Investment Managers. If companies in developing economies embrace sustainability, "a huge amount of capital unlocks," he tells us. 
     
    Christopher Johnstone, a partner at management consultant Oliver Wyman, highlights the need for more asset-specific data to understand how companies will be impacted by climate change and biodiversity loss, and he explains the role AI could play here. He also talks to us about how approaches to sustainability are evolving around the world. 
     
    "Historically people have seen the climate, sustainability or the ESG agenda as being a very Western agenda," Christopher says. "What I am more and more seeing is this is a core topic across lots of different emerging market economies — even a large number of economies that would traditionally be seen as oil-based. They see the energy transition as actually being a key economic enabler and a growth lever as they look to move away from oil over time."
