AATG Podcast - Greening the Financial System & the Role of U.S.-China Cooperation with Hank Paulson

This podcast explores a variety of topics relating to climate change and its impact on the financial services industry and the broader economy. Through conversations with topic experts, each episode encourages a pragmatic, commonsense approach for the transition to a low-carbon and ultimately net-zero economy.  

As momentum builds for the financial services industry to act on climate change, continued international alignment is crucial to ensure progress is made quickly. As the world’s largest and second-largest carbon emitters respectively, China and the U.S. have an opportunity to demonstrate global leadership in confronting this challenge. In this episode, former U.S. Treasury Secretary and noted China expert Hank Paulson discusses China’s recent initiatives to decrease its carbon footprint through innovative solutions, emphasizing how the U.S. and China can work together to tackle climate change—and the potential consequences if they do not.
