Hundreds of financial institutions with more than $100 trillion in capital have signed up to reach net zero by 2050 or earlier, and many investors have committed to 2025 interim targets.

In this inaugural episode of The Responsible Investor Podcast, Elza Holmstedt Pell and Paul Verney bring you insights from conversations with investors about how likely these targets are to be met.

The discussion covers progress made towards the goals and key hurdles investors say they are grappling with – including legal and reputational concerns – and what this could mean for net zero as a concept for financial institutions.

Also in this episode, Responsible Investor reporter Fiona McNally cuts through the headlines on the first wave of adoption efforts of the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) standards – with insights from chats with market participants – and our senior reporter Khalid Azizuddin provides an explainer of the hugely popular temperature scores metric.
