The Big Conversation podcast: the transition to net zero
With Tariq Fancy, former chief investment officer for sustainable investing at BlackRock and Helen Clarkson, CEO of The Climate Group
Welcome to our first Big Conversation podcast, where we bring together leading thinkers from business, politics and academia to explore the forces shaping the world around us.
In this episode, Tim Wilkins, Freshfields’ global partner for client sustainability, and Oliver Dudok van Heel, our head of client sustainability and environment, sit down with Tariq Fancy, former chief investment officer for sustainable investing at BlackRock, and Helen Clarkson, CEO of The Climate Group, to discuss the transition to net zero. Together they look at the impact on business of the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, forthcoming climate-related regulatory changes, the challenges of measuring ESG performance – and the future of capitalism itself.
