Consumer sentiment is a critical part of climate transition risk. As consumers become increasingly aware of the impact goods and services are having on the planet, we will start to see profound shifts in demand.
Join us today as we hear from James Hand, Co-founder of the social enterprise GIKI, an organisation that is creating apps and data tools to inform the public about the impact of their consumption and drive greater transparency in the real economy.
James also reflects on the current state of ESG and how we can make ESG data more useful for driving decision making.
