Recorded on location at the historic Mansion House in the City of London, the 693rd Lord Mayor London, Vincent Keaveny, spoke in person to our host Keesa Schreane ahead of the Net Zero Delivery Summit, that was supported by London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG), which took place at the halfway milestone between COP26 in Glasgow and COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh. In our exclusive interview, the Lord Mayor talked to us about the City of London Corporation's own climate action strategy, which has the goals of becoming net zero by 2027, and how they are trying to bring those businesses housed in the Square Mile with them. He also discussed the role of government and multilateral development banks in influencing business leaders to just transition, as well as what needs to be accomplished between now and COP27 to meet the long-terms goals. We’re excited to debut a new segment on the show called the Green Room, where we dive into the latest research in Sustainable Investing, hearing from experts across the London Stock Exchange Group. Today, we chat to John Simmons from FTSE Russell who has just written a new paper on Carbon Emissions. https://www.ftserussell.com/research/mind-gaps-clarifying-corporate-carbon

This is a special edition of the podcast, the Big IPCC edit.IPCC reports are notoriously hard to read - they are long and very technical. This means that few people actually read them.But they matter to all of us - the insights from these reports affect the way we vote, invest, consume and just generally how we live our lives.To make this bumper episode, I talked to three different authors from three chapters in the latest Working Group 3 report on mitigation solutions.Demand-side solutions, a fast growing area of knowledge, the new, good news chapter of the entire reportInvestment and finance - volume of literature on this tripled between previous 2014 assessment and this oneLong-term emissions pathways - the heart of net zeroIn the second segment, I talk to Joyashree Roy, Coordinating Lead Author for the new chapter on demand, services and social aspects of mitigation. This is a big deal, as previous reports focused mostly on supply-side solutions like renewable energies. But this report shows with high confidence that demand-side strategies can reduce 40-70% of emissions across all sectors.But first, I talk to Christa Clapp and Glen Peters from the CICERO Centre for International Climate Research in Norway.Our conversation is an important primer for anyone who wants to get their head around net zero. Among the highlights: why the “three more years to reduce emissions” thing is wrong. Why peak emissions are an important signal for the oil and gas sector, and why does the report have an entire chapter on finance and investment, yet the IPCC doesn’t target financial decision makers with its report?We also talk about #climatetwitter - how is it changing and what does that mean for the IPCC and its reports?What we talked about:Part One: Christa Clapp and Glen Peters2.35 The finance chapter is 3 times bigger than in the previous assessment. A lot is happening, but we still don’t know the impact of that activity6.31 Why “three more years to reduce the emissions curve” is an error, one that sends the wrong signal about having more time10.02 What is “peak emissions” and why does it matter? In fact, what matters most is the reduction after the peak. (Glen)11:59 The language around peak emissions matters to the oil and gas sector because it affects decisions around when to reduce production. Most oil and gas majors in their scenarios have emissions peaking between 2030 and 2040.15.44 Emissions were back at 2019 levels in 2021. So we’re essentially at a new peak emisssions. 18.20 War in Ukraine is driving new interest in nuclear, and we’re starting to see nuclear energy deals being labelled as green.22.08 Everyone agrees climate specialists from different areas such as finance and carbon cycle specialists should communicate and collaborate more, but there are many barriers.27.08 Glen says that an Integrated Assessment Model is like a jack of all trades but a master of none. 28.22 The finance sector is a whole new consumer group for climate scenarios, and sometimes this means they use the scenarios in a way they weren’t intended. We should be clearer about what the models are doing and not doing, and provide extra information.29.21 The IPCC doesn’t target financial decision makers as an audience with their reports. 30.18 One thing the scientific literature shows is that all the activity in the finance sector is focused on financial regulation around climate risk transparency, which builds capacity within institutions but does not, for the moment, drive emissions reductions. 34.33. Glen talks about climate twitter and how it’s changed in recent years.Part Two: Joyashree Roy42:02 Literature on demand solutions has proliferated since the Fifth Assessment, especially from the social sciences.44.38 Lifestyle and behaviour changes can reduce energy demand and our carbon footprint without reducing our wellbeing49:07 Demand-side strategies can reduce 40-70% of emissions across all sectors.53:53 A big focus of the literature is human desire for health and wellbeing over accumulation of material goods. In order to drive more sustainable consumption patterns, we need social movements, role models to support social acceptability of these new patterns of consumption.57:06 Policies can change behaviour, for example putting a tax on status consumption items.1:05 We need to set wellbeing as our goal and not income and material accumulation.Thanks for listening!☕☕☕ If you enjoyed this ad-free podcast and feel that you’ve learned something, you can say thank you by buying me a coffee.

This episode discusses the challenges associated with the transition to a net-zero future in Africa. Presently, more than 600 million people across the continent lack access to electricity, and many African countries are reliant on fossil fuels for economic development. At the same time, Africa only accounts for 2-3% of global carbon emissions. This reality means that the transition to a cleaner economy may impose an acute burden on people living in Africa. Our host, Ujunwa Ojemeni, is joined by Professor Sir Dieter Helm of the University of Oxford and Fatma Lucy Nyambura of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative to discuss how to ensure this energy transition is inclusive and just for all Africans. Professor Helm is a Professor of Economic Policy at the University of Oxford, a Fellow in Economics at New College, and an Adjunct Faculty Member at the Blavatnik School of Government. Previously, Professor Helm was a member of the Economics Advisory Group to the British Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change and is the author of acclaimed books The Carbon Crunch (2012) and Natural Capital: Valuing The Planet (2016), Burn Out (2017), and Net Zero (2021), among others. Fatma Lucy Nyambura is a Policy Officer at the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), focusing on commodity trading and state-owned enterprises transparency. Her work entails development and implementation of policies to increase the disclosure of oil, gas, and minerals sales and purchases. Prior to joining the EITI, Nyambura worked in development consulting in Ghana, Georgia, Liberia, Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Nyambura is an Advocate of the High Court of Kenya and a Certified Public Secretary. This episode is hosted by Ujunwa Ojemeni and produced by Read Leask.

Did you know Australia's about to enter another mining boom? This time, it's not coal we're digging up, but critical metals needed to build things like wind turbines and electric cars. Today, ABC Four Corners reporter Angus Grigg on his investigation into the unusual conflict between miners who say they're helping to save the planet, and environmentalists who say the industry needs to radically change its practices to ensure precious land isn't destroyed forever.

techUK is the trade association that brings together people, companies, and organisations to realise the positive outcomes of what digital technology can achieve. With over 850 members (the majority of which are SMEs) across the UK, techUK creates a network for innovation and collaboration across business, government, and stakeholders to provide a better future for people, society, the economy, and the planet. Matthew Evans, Director for Markets, techUK, joins me on Tech Talks Daily in a conversation about why digital transformation is critical to the decarbonisation journey of organisations in every sector. I learn more about how industries are converging across supply chains and sectors with tech partners to find innovations that reduce carbon emissions and efficiencies that drive down energy use. By 2030, digital technology can cut global emissions by 15%. Cloud computing, 5G, AI, and IoT have the potential to dramatically reduce carbon emissions in sectors such as transport, agriculture, and manufacturing. techUK is working to foster the right policy framework and climate leadership so we can all play our part. We discuss how techUK focuses on applying emerging technologies in traditional forms of infrastructure to deliver innovative environmental solutions. We also talk about their core aim to work towards a policy and regulatory environment that removes the barriers to tech investment. For example, techUK will lobby for a tax, R&D, innovation, and business environment that enables all sectors to invest in digital tools to help them decarbonise and, in turn, supports clean tech organisations. Overall digital tech is the best way to reach net zero and deliver wider benefits such as cost savings, process efficiencies, and new business models.

As I continue to explore the knowledge and wisdom of people around the world working to build and strengthen their communities, I've been uncovering inspiring examples of local initiatives striving for a carbon neutral future. Inspired to act by the global efforts to reduce nonrenewable fuel dependence and to uncouple their essential infrastructure from fossil fuels, communities have taken it upon themselves to do their part to transition towards a sustainable future even if governments at the national level have been lagging behind. One of the more advanced of these community projects with a track record of enduring change and resilience is that of the community of Hepburn Shire in Victoria, Australia where a community partnership called Hepburn Z-NET is working to make the Hepburn Shire the first zero-net emission shire in Australia. One of the people who has been instrumental in organizing community efforts to come together around the goal of net zero emissions is Taryn Lane. Taryn designed and led the Hepburn Shire Z-NET project which modeled a “whole municipality” 100% renewable and carbon-neutral pathway. For the past decade Taryn has also managed Hepburn Wind, the first and largest community-owned renewable energy facility in Australia. The 4.1MW wind farm hosts two turbines, called Gale and Gusto, that produce enough clean energy to power more than 2000 homes. She has also undertaken a Churchill Scholarship looking at community energy projects around the world. Taryn is also a founding director of the Australian Wind Alliance and the Coalition for Community Energy. She has recently developed two best practice community engagement guides for large scale renewable energy developments for both the Victorian Government and the Clean Energy Council. The project is open source and a best practice approach to bottom-up transition. In this interview we discuss a wide range of topics from the more technical side like the breadth of factors in calculating the emissions impact of a community, the various technologies needed for a resilient system throughout the year, and strategic financial planning in the long term to reach goals that are out of reach at the beginning.We also dive deep into the community organization aspects which are essential to success lik gaining the trust of local residents, bringing together people from various sectors, managing expectations, and including diverse voices in each level of decision making. I especially recommend sticking around to the end of the interview when Taryn gives her advice for people looking to start similar initiatives in their own communities and where they can find tools and resources to help them get started.

In February, the SEC released proposed rules for reporting climate risk and Green House Gas emissions, including Scope 1, 2 and 3. What exactly are in the proposed rules? How likely are they to be enacted? How will they affect the energy and commodities sector both in the US and globally? How should leadership respond? Now that these risks have been highlighted, will investors drive change through the supply chain? And do they herald more stringent reporting and remediation in the future? Julie McLaughlin, Managing Director with Alvarez & Marsal's Energy Practice, sheds light on how to think about these rules and the answers to these questions.

"(ESG tracking software) needs to be comprehensive. It needs to be accurate, you know, full proof. It needs to be integrated into other systems. It needs to be easy to use…. And I think, fifth, it's got to be providing you a road map for where to go" Suzanne DiBianca on Electric Ladies Podcast The need for solid systems to track “net zero” emissions and ESG initiatives – environment-social-governance – are more and more critical, especially now that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has announced their proposed climate risk disclosure rules. There are lots of software systems being adapted to do this tracking, including Salesforce, which is known for their sales-focused software. But what should we look for in a good software to track this stuff, some of which is intangible? Listen to Suzanne DiBianca of Salesforce explain it in this fascinating interview with Electric Ladies host Joan Michelson. (Electric Ladies was formerly known as Green Connections Radio.) You'll hear: What net zero really means, no matter what industry you're in. What to look for in good emissions-climate-ESG tracking software. How Salesforce developed theirs to help them track their own carbon footprint. Plus, insightful career advice. And much more! “More venture money has gone into climate tech than ever in history in the U.S. in particular, but all over the world. And there's great companies that are doing direct air capture, that are doing clean energy, that are doing renewables, that are….(doing) such amazing innovation….You can work for an amazing company like that as a marketing professional, as an HR professional, as a sales professional…(in all kinds of roles)… So, either, stay put where you are and look are places to make impact based on your skill set and what the company's committed to, or, there's all kinds of incredible entrepreneurs out there doing amazing things in the world.

If the international shipping sector were a country, it would be the sixth largest CO2 emitting nation in the world. Every year, 11 billion tons of goods - about 80% of all the goods we use or consume - reach us by ship, emitting nearly a billion tons of CO2 into the atmosphere in the process. And, about 40% of those goods - nearly 4.5 billion tons - are fossil fuels.Unlike switching to renewable energy and electric road vehicles, there is not an obvious short-term economic benefit to decarbonizing shipping, which makes even the simplest solutions (like slowing down the ships!) difficult to incentivize. Climate Now sat down with Bryan Comer, Marine Program Lead at The International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT), to discuss the shipping industry's decarbonization goals, the policy changes needed to reach them, and the future of sustainable shipping.1:02 What is the ICCT?3:17 Overview of the shipping industry6:49 What are the emissions reduction goals of the shipping industry?9:36 Strategies to reach these reduction goals14:10 Challenges to accomplish the emissions reduction goals

Tune in to the 6th and final episode of my deep dive into the hypothetical question “What if we (the Australian people) took control of the next Federal Election?Today I interview Dr. Hanabeth Luke, who is running as an Independent Candidate for the Electorate of Page. Hanabeth is a scientist and Senior Lecturer at the Southern Cross University. She helped found the world's first course in Regenerative Agriculture and was driven to run as an Independent candidate due to her concern with climate inaction in Australia. Today we discuss: How the campaign is going so far; How Climate200 has assisted Hanabeth during her campaign; How Hanabeth was selected to run as an Independent by the Voices 4 Page community group; Whether, if Hanabeth is elected, she is open to considering the more progressive and "big picture" ideas in response to the climate crisis and 6th mass extinction; Why comments from the Nationals to the tune of "net zero is dead" are scientifically incorrect; Why it is essential for farming communities that Australia transitions to Net Zero, and how transitioning to more regenerative practices is of significant benefit to farmers; Hanabeth answers the question: will it be chaos if multiple Independents are elected into Parliament with a minority government? Hanabeth explains what she is disappointed by in politics right now and how she thinks things could be different; Hanabeth describes her greatest hardships in life and how they have shaped her to be the person she is today; and Whether Hanabeth thinks the Independents are in with a real chance this Federal Election.
