We must intensify our efforts to combat climate change, loss of biodiversity, and rising inequality, and build an economy that is fit for the future: one that is more resilient, more sustainable, and more inclusive.
Listen to Hans Stegeman and Tim Jackson discuss the Need for radical change.
Investors play a crucial role in the transition to this new economy, providing the capital needed to realise real and profound change. The investment choices they make can have a positive impact on our planet and on society, and at the same time safeguard their chances of solid long-term investment returns.
In the coming months, in a series of articles and podcasts, Chief Investment Strategist Hans Stegeman explores the contours of a future-proof economy, and the ways to get there.
