Episode 4: Navigating Adversity With Purpose

Businesses now accept that they have a responsibility to consider climate change. But can they really steer the solutions?

Can climate change be solved by business?

Climate change has not always been accepted by business nor seen as a problem that is its responsibility to solve. That has now changed, but can business really steer the solutions?

We sat down with Thomas Camerata, Co-founder and Director of SouthPole, a carbon finance consultancy that enables businesses to invest in solving climate change as part of their ESG initiative.   

“Money coming from governments, from companies, combining markets and solving climate change – that is the combination I liked.’ 

Thomas explains how a commitment to a higher cause steers the company through tough times, and ensures as a society we can tackle the most pressing issue of our time: climate change.

“ We had pressure from investors to cost cut, just finish the projects we have …but the group of co-founders decided ‘no, no,’ we want to stay in that market.”
