US SIF CEO Lisa Woll talks with ESG Out Loud, reflecting on her time at the organization and how sustainable investing has grown from virtually unheard of to a popular topic that is mocked by politicians and one comic strip. The intensity of the recent opposition to sustainable investing hints that it is successful and is seen as a threat to business as usual. New regulations being pushed by the Biden administration could help propel ESG even further, Woll says.
Also, Paul and Emile discuss the climate implications of crypto and how a recent change instituted by Ethereum could mean a more environmentally friendly future for digital assets.
