Meet our Head of Sustainable and Impact Investing

Michael Baldinger, Head of Sustainable and Impact Investing

"We see the "E" i.e. climate change as the single biggest long-term systemic risk and opportunity for economies, societies and the environment. Just like climate change, the pandemic is a systemic tidal wave. It's ripped through countries at speed, leaving behind profound "S" socio-economic destruction. I think if we can learn from the pandemic and apply those lessons to climate change, then long-term we might all benefit."

In the spotlight:

Watch the replay of the COVID-19 and the future of capitalism plenary which took place on June 15th

Will markets change as a result of COVID-19 and what does that mean for sustainable finance? E: Will funding for environmental finance be set back in favour of re-establishing BAU, or is it the way to revive growth? What hope for COP26? And what about the oil price? S: Can we expect more focus on social, labour and equality issues in future corporate and investment thinking? G: Has the crisis put corporate governance on hold, or indicated that we need much more of it?
