    Episode 14 - Claudia Chapman

    Episode 14 - Claudia Chapman

    This week we are joined by the head of stewardship and main architect of the Financial Reporting Council's new Stewardship Code, Claudia Chapman. This week the FRC announced the very first signatories to the new UK Code, and we discuss the challenges and opportunities for both asset owners and asset managers in using the code as a reporting and communication tool. Claudia is a fantastic speaker, so this is an extremely easy listen!

    Rory Sullivan turns full-on influencer this week, with 5 life lessons from a classic https://www.google.co.uk/books/edition/What_They_Don_t_Teach_You_at_Harvard_Bus/vQn5jwEACAAJ?hl=en

    Episode 13 - John Howchin

    Episode 13 - John Howchin

    This week we have the holder of the best job title in all of responsible investment, John Howchin. We talk about the mine tailings initiative, how we can use that as a model, and where we might want to use that model next. Some really interesting discussions on what the next steps in responsible ownership for large asset owners might look like - a Marshall Plan for climate stewardship. Gripping stuff.

    Rory Sullivan pens a love letter to Roddy Doyle in this week's chat about books.

    Episode 12 - David Bryson

    Episode 12 - David Bryson

    This week we are joined by the Chief Operating Officer (and joint Chief Sustainability Officer) of Uniper, David Bryson. Uniper have a large fleet of largely fossil based electricity production assets, and so this was a perfect chance to talk about the energy transition with a strategically inportant company with much work to do to transition their assets. With an outline aggressive net zero plan for 2035, David's role in making the future of the European power fit for the future is hugely important. He's also a great guy to talk to.

    Rory Sullivan looks back on the decade we could have stopped climate change, with Nathaniel Rich's work: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/08/01/magazine/climate-change-losing-earth.html

    Episode 11 - Fiona Reynolds

    This week we are joined by current PRI CEO Fiona Reynolds, a giant in the responsible investment scene. We talk about what led to the decision for her to stand down from the PRI to return to Australia, where disclosure stands at the moment, and really try and get a feel for what responsible investment really means. We're so grateful to have her on.

    Rory Sullivan with his dullest and yet arguable most useful book of the week this week - definitely one to put on the buy list: https://www.google.co.uk/books/edition/An_Introduction_to_Corporate_Environment/LKo0DwAAQBAJ?hl=en

    Episode 10 - Kirsty Jenkinson

    Our guest this week is CalSTERS's Kirsty Jenkinson. Kirsty joins us from scorching Sacramento, an area very much feeling the brunt of climate change in recent years. We talk her work in backing the Engine No 1 Re-energize Exxon campaign, and how to implement sustainability and impact across a multi-asset portfolio. Kirsty is a very bright investment mind and we are truly honoured to have her join us.

    Rory Sullivan rights a longstanding wrong with this week's book review, with a departure from his more usual accessible texts: https://www.e-elgar.com/shop/gbp/environmental-governance-in-europe-9781782545026.html
