#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.

This latest episode has been recorded as part of edie’s Climate Finance Week 2022 (18-22 July) of exclusive content and events. It sees edie’s senior reporter Sarah George dialling the Palladium Group’s managing director of impact investment and business growth Jose Maria Ortiz.

Ortiz is on hand to provide an overview of how he is seeing actors in the public sector, including national and sub-national governments, approach the transition to net-zero finance. Palladium is one of the major facilitators of impact projects for actors in the public and private sectors.

This discussion specifically takes an in-depth look at scaling finance for nature-based solutions, an emerging asset class which will need to scale quickly in fight against the climate and nature crises. Ortiz provides his thoughts on effective collaboration for ethical and resilient nature-based projects.
