Leading Edge - Sustainable Finance: is green the new black?

The uptake and availability of green investments are fast-growing, but how do we tell the difference between sustainable finance and ‘greenwashing’? Is this just a space for investing ‘spare’ money?

LE3 web ep CP

Listen to Carol’s episode to hear her discuss these topics:

Genuinely green investments and green jobs

Risk – in terms of finance and the world we live in

Sustainability and the part it plays in our futures

“Once we start thinking in a sustainable way, there's a recognition that you create additional risk by behaving non sustainably so it's a case of thinking about risk in a slightly different way, not just in terms of finance, but the future of the world that we're living in”
Professor Carol Padgett

What will Carol keep and stop doing in the ‘new normal’?

Continue: thinking about why she travels and have meetings online when appropriate.

Stop: working at home and instead walk to work and see people in her office.
