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 seventh episode in this series focuses on the “Net Zero Transition – Opportunities and Headwinds,” with Aron Cramer, President and CEO, BSR, interviewing Curtis Ravenel, Senior Advisor to the Co-chairs and Vice Chair, Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ).

Curtis provides insights from his almost two decades of experience in the sustainability space on the net zero landscape, including the progress of integrating ESG factors into investment decision-making, and the current headwinds and ESG backlash. He discusses his involvement with several collaborations aiming to establish strong foundations for sustainability investment, reporting, and disclosure. Curtis is uniquely well positioned to discuss how to drive more sustainable outcomes by utilizing disclosures for better decision-making and risk mitigation, while continuing to find the balance between voluntary reporting and regulatory requirements.
