WATCH: Green finance expert Ben Caldecott, co-head of the Transition Plan Taskforce, offers his insights at the Net Zero Festival 2023
One of the biggest challenges for the escalating climate and nature crises the planet faces is the need to scape up finance to fund greener solutions to deliver a more sustainable economy. So what are the barriers holding back the trillions of dollars of investment needed worldwide over the coming years, and how can the green economy overcome them to fund its own expansion?
Ben Caldecott, co-head of the Transition Plan Taskforce secretariat - who also sits on the adaptation committee within the UK's Climate Change Committee (CCC) - sat down for a fireside chat with BusinessGreen's editor in chief James Murray to discuss all this and more at the recent Net Zero Festival 2023.
Their conversation can be watched back in full in the video below.
