Sustainable Views: From football stardom to green investing

Working in sustainability is almost by definition a “career change”, given the recent nature of this area. As far as career moves go, however, few may feel as far apart as those of elite football and niche science. French international footballer Mathieu Flamini has done just that, co-founding GF Biochemicals at the end of his playing days. Football aficionados will remember Flamini’s time with the French national team, England’s Arsenal and Italy’s AC Milan. These days, his focus is on developing a version of levulinic acid, a plant-based alternative to the oil-based chemicals used in paint ..read more

If you work in sustainability, you'll already be familiar with Desiree Fixler. If you're new to this area, Desiree is the whistleblower who instigated multiple investigations into the ESG credentials of DWS, the asset manager part of Deutsche Bank. At one point, the German police got involved too. The company’s shares dived; its CEO stepped down. This is arguably the biggest sustainable finance scandal to date. Desiree, who used to be DWS’s global sustainability officer, accused her former employer of greenwashing. In September this year, the US Securities and Exchange Commission concluded s ..read more

Sustainable Views: Should you offset your carbon emissions?
Sustainable Views

They are meant to help us transition to a greener economy but carbon offsets, and the markets where they are traded, are fraught with controversy. The quality of carbon credits is under scrutiny, as is their use by companies, which may purchase them in lieu of real action towards net zero. Consultancy McKinsey estimates that this space will be worth as much as $50bn by 2030. Used judiciously, carbon offsetting can channel funds towards activities that help prevent or remove CO2 emissions from the atmosphere. Used cynically, the practice risks becoming a sophisticated form of greenwashing.&nb ..read more

Sustainable Views: Looking after your financial health

Though most of us would understand what the term ‘financial health’ means, there isn’t quite an official definition. That’s a problem if we want policymakers to pay attention to this area.  Ensuring we have enough money at the end of the month should be a concern not just for individuals, but for employers and financial regulators too.  This is what Queen Mȧxima of the Netherlands has been campaigning for in her role as UN secretary-general’s special advocate for inclusive finance, or UNSGSA. In this episode, you’ll hear the Queen’s views on financial health and why it matters to ..read more
