Geo for Earth - Episode 3: How do we mobilise the trillions of dollars necessary to transition to a low carbon economy and build a more equitable & just society?

Posted on: 16/06/2022

Geo for Earth is a podcast series that explores the critical role that location intelligence and space data have in helping us understand our planet and tackle climate change. Organised by Andy Bennett - Space Lead, and Luca Budello - Geospatial Lead at Innovate UK KTN, the eight 40-minute episodes will feature discussions around a specific topic with two guest speakers including policy makers, sector specialists, and emerging thinkers.

What is the role of finance in supporting the efforts towards reaching net zero and reducing carbon emissions? In this episode, we will explore how finance can tackle injustice by supporting business to understand financial risk, and transfer wealth from developed to developing countries for the benefit of the environment and the people that look after it.

Suzie Imber – Space physicist, University of Leicester
Dallas Campbell – Science and technology TV presenter
