Achieving Net-Zero: Reframing Climate Change as a Supply Side Issue

Hear from Mark Campanale, Founder of the Carbon Tracker Initiative, as we dive into the strategies being used to align financial markets to a net-zero economy.

Global financial markets play a major role in addressing the challenges of climate change. But is the financial system equipped with the right tools to progress the net-zero transition with the urgency that is required? Are current strategies, such as the TCFD disclosures framework and the EU Taxonomy likely to get us to net-zero, or do we need to think more radically?

In this episode of the Climate Risk Podcast, guest Mark Campanale shares his thoughts on the latest developments in the world of sustainable finance, including:

  • Why focusing on disclosures only addresses one part of the sustainable finance issue
  • The limitations of demand-side policy interventions and the need for supply-side restrictions
  • What McKinsey & Co. got wrong about the cost of the net-zero transition
