The latest edition of our Sustainable Views newsletter

Dear reader,

A recurring theme in 2023 was the lack of skills and education in all areas relating to the transition to net zero, including in the fields of ESG reporting and disclosure and clean energy.

Numerous experts made it clear to Sustainable Views that if reporting and disclosure requirements are to have a real-world impact, experts across businesses need to be up to speed on ESG, and training should be available for those who need it.

There also need to be enough people on the ground who can build and install the infrastructure necessary to create a clean tech economy and society — there is no point changing financial flows and business practices if ultimately there isn’t a trained workforce to install heat pumps or insulate buildings.

Below, we’ve chosen a selection of our most-read stories covering these subjects.

Do get in touch and let us know what you’ve enjoyed in 2023 and what you would like to see more of from Sustainable Views in 2024.

We’ll be back with our first full newsletter of the new year on January 3.

Until then, Happy New Year.

Philippa
