Marilyn Waite knows a lot about sustainability and climate – she also knows the global community has much work ahead if it wants to make real positive change in the long-term. Waite leads the Climate Finance Fund, a $75 million philanthropic platform covering the markets of China, Europe and the United States. She’s also worked in renewable and nuclear energy, climate modeling and investment.
Waite talks with David about what she learned at COP 26, the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials and the role fintech can play in environmental sustainability. Waite, a published author and frequent contributor to major publications, also touches on her hopes for tomorrow’s banker and how climate-friendly practices can – and need to be – implemented into not only our personal lives, but our careers.
