On this episode

As COP26 comes to a close, governments around the world have pledged to do more to limit climate catastrophe. But what role does the global finance sector play in reaching the goal of keeping global heating below 1.5℃? In this episode, Nina sits down with Mambu’s own Director of Sustainability Anna Krotova; Siobhan Cleary, Senior Specialist from the UN Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative; and Marianne Haahr, Executive Director of the Green Digital Finance Alliance to discuss sustainability in finance.
