About this episode

In this bonus episode, Ashurst partner Anna-Marie Slot chats with Responsible Risk Ltd founder Richard Peers about the past, present and future of sustainable finance.

Peers emphasises that the capability now exists to increase transparency in the circular economy. “We need to put a sort of vaccine shot in the arm of our response to data needs for climate change by bringing in satellite and sensor data, normalising it and making it available so that really good risk decisions can be made,” he says.

Peers also explains how there needs to be a virtuous circle of consumer demand influencing policy change influencing corporate action. He also discusses recent data indicating that ethical organisations deliver better returns for investors. Ten years from now, Peers suggests, sustainable finance and ESG will be embedded in every investment decision that is made.
