Mark Carney, Fatih Birol and the Narrow Path to Net Zero

When we think of action on climate change, we usually think of what individuals can do, what governments can do, and maybe what businesses can do. But what about the broader economic levers that affect behaviors?  Can we get companies to walk away from billions of dollars they’ve already invested in a fossil fuel-based economy? Insurers are on the front lines of climate disruption; it’s their business to put a price on risk.

Guests: Mark Carney, UN Special Envoy on Climate Action and Finance  Fatih Birol, executive director of the International Energy Agency Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
