MoFo and BSR’s monthly conversation series, ESG Influencers – Leading Transformative Change, showcases an influencer from the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) arena, providing insights on how they are leading transformative change to help build a more sustainable future.
The eleventh episode in this series focuses on “Just Transition: How Companies and Investors Can Ensure an Equitable and Sustainable Future,” with Aron Cramer, President and CEO of BSR, interviewing Kate Gordon, former Senior Advisor to Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
It is increasingly clear that the energy transition needs to be inclusive, not only to advance equity, but also to bolster the political will to take action. Increasingly, companies are devising just transition strategies to ensure that the energy transition considers questions such as access to clean energy, employment transition for those displaced from the fossil fuel economy, supply chain questions related to resources needed for the clean energy economy, and the means of addressing the economic and environmental harms related to fossil fuel development and deployment. Kate Gordon joins us to share her perspective and expertise based on her experience as a leading climate advisor.
