Deep dives

The Challenge of Financing Climate Solutions

The podcast episode delves into the slow progress of financial markets in decarbonizing the economy. According to the United Nations, $3-4 trillion annually is required to globally decarbonize the economy by 2050. While funds are being directed towards climate solutions, it is not nearly enough and is not reaching hard-to-decarbonize sectors or the global south. Transformational change is needed in the finance sector, businesses, public policy, and the way capital allocation is perceived.
