Episode 1: How to rebuild a broken financial system?
From broken to sustainable: rebuilding
our financial system
Mike Barry launches our ‘Citizens for Change’ Series with a candid look at how we can democratise sustainable finance for the future.
How do we transform a broken financial system into a sustainable one, ready to support the net zero transition? In this first episode of the ‘Citizens for Change’ Series, we look at how playing by the old rules where profits seem to matter more than ‘people and planet’ is no longer viable. We need new policies to encourage positive behaviour, more transparent metrics that are easily understood by consumers. As Sarah Gordon expresses it beautifully in this episode, ‘what gets measured gets managed.
Mike Barry looks for solutions with Sarah Gordon (CEO, Impact Investing Institute), Thembeka Stemala Dagbo (Deputy Fund Manager, M&G), and Catherina Howarth (CEO, Share Action). Digging into their extensive knowledge, they highlight the specific ways in which we can build a sustainable finance system fit for the future.
You would be surprised to hear that greenwashing could actually reflect a step into the right direction! And why we should urgently focus on financial literacy and empowering citizens to use their money as a vote.
