Investing for Impact

IMPACT = Podcast How the climate crisis is affecting businesses in emerging economies

Listen on

Episode notes

The climate emergency is having a devastating impact on emerging economies. Without decisive action, this will only become more severe as global temperatures rise and as countries transition toward net zero.

Emerging economies are among the nations most exposed to and the least prepared for the effects of climate change. This is particularly the case across Africa, South and South-East Asia, and the Caribbean, where we invest.

In this episode of the IMPACT= Podcast, we explore how the climate crisis is affecting businesses in emerging economies through the lens of our Emerging Economies Climate Report.

We recently launched the report at an event with a panel of expert speakers to dig deeper into the findings, and explore how we can address climate risks and maximise opportunities in emerging economies. In this podcast, we cover some of the key contributions from our speakers:
