Good cop, bad COP

There’s been a lot of rhetoric over the last two weeks of COP26 and a myriad of deals and commitments, far too many for us. So, we've picked on four specific areas that matter most to investors: emissions targets, policy implementation, climate finance and natural capital.

Alex Monk, a Portfolio Manager Schroders and Holly Turner and Catherine Macaulay, Sustainable analysts at Schroders join the pod to discuss the good and the bad of COP26.

This show was recorded on November 11, 2021 just prior to the conclusion of COP26.

PART TWO: 18:34 - The good and the bad of climate finance and natural capital
