  2. This episode's guest is Mark Joiner.Mark is the former Executive Director of Finance for NAB, the current Chair of QBE Insurance, and has previously held a myriad of top-tier roles in the financial sector.I know what you may be thinking... "what in the world does and banking/insurance executive have to say about environmental and community issues?"The answer will floor you.Mark is a deeply caring and thoughtful individual, and someone who beautifully articulates many of the structural problems with the corporate world that give rise to environmental and social injustice.The things that he says in this conversations you would expect to hear from an activist, or a scholar, or an independent thinker. Mark is all of those things, and speaks about his 'highest value point of intervention' being in the board room rather than the protest rally (which would probably mean he wouldn't be allowed in any more board rooms!)The truth is, we need people from all backgrounds and parts of society to collectively want to create positive change, and rather than try to point the finger at each other we should be asking ourselves, 'what can we do together?'Mark graciously invited me to his home in the Byron hinterland where, after a tour of the property surveying all of the tree planting he has done, we sat down to discuss society at large; including the problems with our current capitalist system, the structural pressures of working in large corporations, and what people can do on an individual level to create change, no matter how small.Thank you so much for listening. I'm having fun and I hope you are too.Keep the good vibes rollin' by hitting subscribe and sharing on instagram.Cheers!

  3. For some business owners the environment might be the last thing you’re considering as you navigate operations through the pandemic. With visible improvement in water and air across the globe during COVID-19 it’s an image we can have in the future if we begin to rebuild with climate in mind. The best part is that the solutions are accessible, available and won’t break the bank. Anna Skarbek is CEO of ClimateWorks Australia, a non-profit think-tank and advisory body helping bridge the gap between climate research and action, so not just talking about the numbers and data but working through policy to get the job done. And what’s the goal? Net zero emissions by 2050.

  5. This is our second episode of an Outrage + Optimism investigative series on The Future of Transport. There’s no denying that for over a century, fossil fuels have played a key role in humanity’s progress. But at a cost. They account for two-thirds of global greenhouse-gas emissions, and the pollution from burning them kills more than 4 million people a year. So in a year where cars sat unused, and oil prices crashed...what is the future of fuels? We know that in order to meet the Paris Agreement, we need to reduce CO2 emissions by 50% by 2030. Because even though COVID-19 is expected to reduce energy-related CO2 emissions by 7% this year, we need massive changes in how we move people and things. So will we see the end of the internal combustion engine? How will the world go electric? Can hydrogen scale to meet our energy demands? Our hosts Tom Rivett-Carnac, Christiana Figueres and Paul Dickinson pull out the roadmap to a zero-emission future, hit the road looking for answers to a decarbonized transport sector with experts who are in the driver's seat. Read Tom’s blog to find out more from behind the scenes.
