#SustyTalk: WWF’s Raymond Dhirani on financing the green recovery

edie's SustyTalk series continues with WWF UK's head of sustainable finance Raymond Dhirani discussing the role of the finance sector in creating a Covid-19 recovery movement that tackles the twin climate and nature crises.

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 WWF UK’s head of sustainable finance Raymond Dhirani, shortly after the NGO launched its latest film, ‘Our Planet: Too Big to Fail’. 

Following on from the huge success of ‘Our Planet: Our Business‘ last year, the new film lays bare the finance system’s huge contribution to climate change and habitat loss – and the ways in which it can transform to become a force for good. It features interviews with the likes of former Bank of England Governor Mark Carney, ShareAction’s chief executive Catherine Howarth and Aviva Investors’ chief responsible investment officer Steve Waygood. 

Dhirani provides a deeper dive into the practicalities of creating and premiering a sustainability film in the time of Covid-19 and offers his thoughts on the key opportunities of – and barriers to – reshaping the global financial system with people and planet in mind.
