Climate & Finance #1: How Your Savings Impact Climate Change (Briefing)
In most countries in the Western world—and definitely in the Nordics—much of the money that is sitting at the bank, in other words “our savings,” is used every day to invest in global financial markets. Most people ignore what is really happening backstage with their investments, life insurance, pension scheme, etc. In this episode, we analyze the connection between finance & climate change, conclude on the Paris COP21 and talk to Magnus Emfel, Senior Advisor Sustainable Economy at WWF Sweden to decrypt these issues and answer one question: Who makes the decisions that lead us to investing in the problem?
This is the first episode of a 3-episode series on Energy & Finance: the second episode explores Climate & Finance: The System we Need. Stay tuned for the third part in this series.
