Paris Climate Pact: Corporate Winners and Losers

December 14th, 2015

Episode 415 of 836 episodes

The success of the Paris climate change deal effectively calls for wholesale transformations of energy, transport and many other lines of business. We speak to Anthony Hobley, CEO of The Carbon Tracker Initiative, a research house, about who wins and who loses in the business world following the Paris deal. Also, from environmental pollution to noise pollution, Paige Hodsman from acoustic solutions manufacturer Saint-Gobain Ecophon, talks to us about what high noise levels do to employee productivity. And, Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times tells us why the alternative - working from home - is not a sensible option long-term.
