VPRO Tegenlicht’s broadcast on 28 February 2021 was all about ‘green money’. In the programme, Fair Capital Partners’ Jan Willem Nieuwenhuys and Jasper Snoek share their views on the role money can play in making our world a greener place.
There’s an urgent need to fundamentally change the economy across the globe. The depletion of natural resources is exhausting the planet. At the same time, carbon emissions and other greenhouse gases are causing climate change. Many of the world’s people cannot take part in the much-needed transition to a more sustainable economy. Elsewhere, climate change has rendered it impossible for people to sustain a livelihood, forcing them to migrate. To improve this situation, and to prevent things from getting worse, it’s vital that we create a sustainable, circular economy as soon as possible.
