Trevor Williams: ‘ESG should be about carbon reduction’

Economist joins ESG Out Loud podcast to chat decarbonisation policy, industry initiatives and what to expect from COP28

Former chief economist at Lloyds Bank Trevor Williams joins ESG Clarity in the podcast studio following his speech at our Responsible Pathway conference in June.

We chat about that Economist article, Williams’ view on nascent technologies (“carbon capture is a cop-out”); what the UK government should be focusing on when it comes to decarbonisation and who is going to pay for it; what impact the Inflation Reduction Act will have; and what Williams thinks about GFANZ, CA100+ and other industry initiatives.

Listen to the latest episode of ESG Out Loud above.
