Episode 39,  Mar 29, 10:16 AM

The world has endured systematic disruption in recent years with increasing global temperatures, rising income inequality and deepening geopolitical tensions. Now with a global pandemic and businesses reimagining how they want to operate, the world's largest investors are placing sustainability at the centre of their investment approaches. An imperative to focus on sustainability is emerging with an opportunity to reshape how we interact with our environments.

For this conversation, Michael Creamer was joined by Oliver Dudok van Heel, Head of Client Sustainability and Environment at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP and Katie Henry, Sustainability Manager at Cushman & Wakefield.
