In order to push companies and investors to link their sustainability goals with financial goals, the EU Parliament recently passed a law introducing a labelling system for what can be considered “green.” Nathan Fabian, Chief Investment Officer of UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) explains why we need precise definitions around what can be labelled “green” and how companies and investors can use the taxonomy regulation to report their environmentally sustainable activities.
I am pleased to announce that The ESG Agenda returns today with a new season. As industry leaders grapple with the ongoing effects of the pandemic, increasingly devastating evidence of climate change, and the global implications of an upcoming US election, we’re incredibly excited to welcome our Season 2 guests, who come from organisations like the UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), NASDAQ, the Bank of England, and include CEOs of international energy and waste management company Veolia, circular economy leader The Ellen McArthur Foundation, and responsible investment activist ShareAction.
Episode 1 of Season 2 kicks off with Nathan Fabian, Chief Responsible Investment Officer for PRI, who joins me to discuss the new EU taxonomy regulation.
I hope you find the range of conversations informative, insightful and enlightening.
Thanks for listening,
