There’s a lot of talk happening in Egypt this week about how developed economies should be providing more financial aid to developing economies in order to both compensate for climate loss, as well as help decarbonise those economies.

There have been many powerful comments and commitments, but it was a comment made by Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland that caught my attention today.

She outlined three principles required to reform the financial structures in order to deliver on this mission. In essence, the pillars are: responsible leadership to create “finance for a purpose” in “mission-oriented institutions”, the role of public financing to drive more private funding, and the obligation of private companies to contribute

This probably resonated so strongly with me today because I’ve just launched a webinar to help businesses become more powerful forces for good.

The intention of these webinars is to help smaller businesses be a bigger part of the solution by overcome some of the risk and uncertainty barriers that have hindered their sustainability efforts to date.
