Consumer sentiment is a critical part of climate transition risk. As consumers become aware of the impact goods and services are having on the planet, we may start to see profound shifts in demand.

Join us as we speak with Giki co-founder James Hand. Giki is a social enterprise creating apps and data tools to inform the public about the impact of their consumption and drive greater transparency in the real economy.

James also reflects on the current state of ESG and how we can make ESG data more useful for driving decision making.
