With edie readers working remotely or on furlough, this 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 BNP Paribas Asset Management’s chief sustainability strategist Mark Lewis – also a member of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and a senior associate at the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL). 

Bringing his expertise in economics and research to the table, Lewis discusses market trends in the energy and transport sector and outlines his predictions for the coming years.

Lewis also speaks about the adoption of the TCFD’s recommendations in the financial sector and beyond. 

Lewis spoke to edie ahead of his appearance at edie’s Sustainability Leaders Forum in February. Lewis will be appearing on Day 1 (2 February) of the virtual Forum, as part of a session on the future of sustainable finance, also featuring experts from Scottish Widows, the London Stock Exchange Group, Aviva Investors Real Assets, WHEB Asset Management and Futerra.
