RI Interview: Christiana Figueres: some investors have their heads in the sand, but not for long!

“The absolutely brilliant thing about addressing climate change is that it brings so many benefits together. From a financial point of view it brings long-term financial stability. From an economic point of view it brings long-term development possibilities. From an environmental point of view it protects the planet. From a human development perspective it allows people in the developing world to have the right to truly continue their development without it being wiped out. From a technology point of view it opens up the potential for a huge number of new businesses, jobs and growth. Therefore, if all of this is understood, and on top of that you overlay the understanding that this is the right thing to do vis-a-vis our children, grandchildren and the most vulnerable populations in the world, then quite frankly what’s not to like about this? It’s a fantastic opportunity.”
