View descriptionShare

Helena Wright is the Policy Director at FAIRR, a global network of investors that promotes responsible investing with ESG risks in mind. As Policy Director, Helena focuses on policy solutions related to opportunities and threats surrounding intensive animal agriculture. She regularly engages with people from the government, regulators, major industry bodies, and their respective investors. Before joining FAIRR, Helena was the Vice President for the World Wildlife Foundation in Singapore.

Helena joins me to discuss the things that will likely come up during COP26 and the UN Biodiversity Summit. We discuss why the commitment to keep rising global temperatures at a steady 1.5 Celsius is critical for many life forms in the ocean as well as the rest of the ecosystem. Helena also shares her thoughts on climate change funding and describes why governments will likely realign their climate finance goals.

"Climate stability and biodiversity are important for preservation of the ecosystem that we rely on for life." - Helena Wright
