We’re Living Through A Carbon Bubble—Here’s What We Can Do About It
As part of Ashoka’s Welcome Change series, Pip Wheaton spoke with Ashoka Fellow Mark Campanale (U.K.) about how climate change impacts financial markets, and how investors can support a sustainable future.
Mark started the Carbon Tracker Initiative in 2009 that ended up placing terms like “carbon bubble”, “unburnable carbon” and “stranded assets” into the financial and environmental lexicon. More recently, he founded Planet Tracker that focuses on agriculture, seafood, forestry, water and textiles. Mark worked for 25 years for major asset management companies, and co-founded some of the UK's first responsible investment funds in late 1980s.
