Simon is joined by our first Guest in our Green Conversations podcast series - Sarah Kemmitt, a consultant to UNEP FI, working with the Net Zero Asset Owner and Net Zero Banking Alliances.

With a background in environmental science, Sarah's early career focussed on habitat conservation and research into carbon and nitrogen cycling in agroecosystems.  Following the financial crisis, Sarah took the opportunity to move into banking regulation and internal audit. In recent years she combined these career paths, contributing to the Bank of England’s work on the regulation and supervision of climate risks.
