Sustainability shapers on the just transition and the importance of history

Introducing Thinking Ahead Institute’s new spin-off series, Sustainability shapers on systemic risk. This first episode features an insightful conversation with Leon Kamhi, Head of Responsibility at Federated Hermes.

Together, with host Isabella Martin, they unravel the complexities of systemic risks, focusing on climate change, social inequalities, and the concept of a just transition. Leon shares his wealth of experience, emphasising the vital role of investor stewardship in shaping a sustainable and equitable future.

Join this dynamic dialogue that goes beyond traditional finance, offering a fresh perspective on responsible investment and the path toward a greener, more inclusive world.

We can’t go from A to Z without thinking about, what’s this transition and how is the individual going to be impacted? And that’s why the so called just transition is so, so important because I would argue there’ll be no transition unless the transition is just.

Leon Kamhi, Head of Responsibility at Federated Hermes

I think that the industry needs to be more action-oriented than just talking. In our industry and responsible investment, there is too much virtue signaling. Some of our institutions are all about making sure that one looks good rather than one does good. And I think the action is really, really important.
