Climate change is the most important issue of our time. We’ve all heard that it poses an existential threat to our species and that it is already changing our planet in unprecedented ways, but with so many numbers – from parts-per-million of atmospheric CO2 to the now-famous ‘1.5°C red line’ of the Paris Agreement – we know that it can be confusing.

Our new podcast “Climate Change: Behind the Numbers” helps listeners make sense of the complex topic of climate change. Each episode, we will talk to various experts to try to demystify one climate change number and help you understand how it may affect you, your family and your community.
Along the way we will share some surprising, fun and always interesting stories that span history, science, politics and the economy.

Tune in with us each month on your favourite listening platform for a journey behind the numbers on climate change. We’ll be announcing subsequent episodes on Twitter @ContactPARIS21, so make sure that you follow us.

    ESG investment, sustainable development and greenwashing: Myth and reality | Sony Kapoor

    ESG investment, sustainable development and greenwashing: Myth and reality | Sony Kapoor

    In recent years, environmental, social and governance (ESG) investment has emerged to play a significant role in the sustainable development sector. At the same time, criticisms of the ESG industry have grown louder.
    In this first episode, Sony Kapoor, CEO of the Nordic Institute for Finance, Technology and Sustainability and Professor of Climate, Geoeconomics and Finance at the European University Institute, joins hosts Johannes Jütting and Sasha Ramirez-Hughes for a conversation on sustainable and responsible investing, which amounted to 35.5 trillion dollars in 2021, according to https://gsh.cib.natixis.com/our-center-of-expertise/articles/latest-edition-of-the-global-sustainable-investment-review-confirms-strong-growth-of-esg-assets-all-over-the-world (latest edition of the Global Sustainable Investment Review).
    In his talk, he explores the financial sector’s role in putting the global economy on a sustainable path and points out the risk of mis-selling ESG labelling as well as the need to take climate action in developing and emerging economies.
    “80 percent of environmental destruction happening between now and 2050, is determined by the actions taken or not taken in developing and emerging economies,” Sony Kapoor, an experienced macroeconomist, finance and development expert, concludes.
