In this episode of our podcast series, Bridging the Sustainability Gap, we explore the topic of green finance, putting a lens on the role financial institutions play in enabling business to meet their sustainability goals and effectively mitigate climate change. Going beyond just the green, we take the conversation further, diving into the importance of addressing the blue economy as well when thinking about building a robust climate strategy.
