#SustyTalk: Ashden’s Harriet Lamb on scaling international climate finance

With edie readers working remotely or on furlough, this brand new series of video interviews keeps you connected to the inspirational business leaders who are continuing to drive sustainability and champion climate action from their own homes.

#SustyTalk is all about keeping edie’s loyal readers connected to sustainable business leaders across the world, whilst reminding us all that sustainability and climate action must go on through the current Covid-19 pandemic and beyond. 

The latest episode sees edie’s senior reporter Sarah George speaking with Ashden’s chief executive officer, Harriet Lamb.

Recapping on the recent G7 Summit, where nations committed to get back on track to a previously missed target of providing $100bn of climate finance to developing nations annually, Lamb gives her thoughts on how countries can plan to do their fair share on the road to a net-zero world ahead of COP26.

Drawing insight from Ashden’s ongoing ‘Let’s Go Zero’ campaign for schools, Lamb also explores how community-focussed collaboration can accelerate climate action and maximise the social and economic benefits of the transition to a low-carbon world.

  1. Richard Phillips says:

    Why is CO2 seemingly so much more important in global warming, than water vapour, when that two molecules have such similar IR profiles?
    There have been, in geological times when CO2 has been high and global temperatures low (Ordovician), and vice versa (Permian, Triassic).
    Water vapour has, moreover, a much greater concentration, in general.
