Fight Against Climate Crisis: Effective Strategies for Companies

The smarter E Podcast Episode 51 | June 10, 2021

After endless summers of drought, the realization that something must be done about rising greenhouse gas emissions is finally forcing international politicians to act. Fossil fuels are being banned, and the still considerable carbonization of the economy is being brought down to zero in the shortest possible time. Companies whose business models are based on fossil fuels will be worthless virtually overnight.

Banks, insurance companies, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds and all those who have invested their money in dirty industries will have to write off billions. So far, this has only been fiction, a horror scenario that no longer seems so unreal. But what if the carbon bubble should actually burst?

We talk about this with Nicolas Schuerhoff, Climate Impact Analyst at right. based on science.
