Listen to our Purposing podcast, and learn how to build a purpose-driven business from Given, the consultancy that’s helped some of the world's largest organisations become purposeful.

‘Purposing’ is a podcast designed for CEOs and senior leaders who want to learn what purpose means in practice and the actions needed to deliver it within their own businesses.

Our goal is to give listeners practical and useful advice about running a successful purpose-driven business based on the experiences of people who have actually done it.

 

S2/Ep8 – If we don’t fix the market, we won’t fix climate change

The science on climate change is clear: the planet is heating at an alarming rate. We’re already at risk of breaching the limits set in the 2015 Paris Agreement. Rapid action is needed to ensure net zero pledges are kept and sustainable practices are implemented across business.

No amount of disclosure or engagement will correct the course we’re on if businesses and business leaders don’t fix the fundamental market failures that are driving climate change.

On this episode, Becky Willan is joined by Steve Waygood, Chief Responsible Investment Officer at Aviva Investors to discuss the financial and economic arguments for tough, fast action on the climate emergency. Steve’s been at the heart of sustainable finance since the 1990s, witnessing its growth in ambition, scale and influence every year. Working with the World Wide Fund for Nature straight out of university, Steve established their ethical investment policy, and has been with Aviva Investors for almost two decades.
