BMO Sustainability Podcast on Covid-19 and Sustainable Finance


BMO’s Sustainability Leaders podcast returns with a round table discussion on the COVID-19 crisis and how it’s putting a spotlight on sustainable finance. Host Michael Torrance is joined by BMO sustainability experts Manju SealDavid Sneyd and Jonathan Hackett to discuss the role that sustainable finance can play in our current environment. They explain why they feel it’s time for banks, investors, venture capitalists and others to think carefully about the kinds of products that can be created and the types of investments that can be made to help society recover from this pandemic.
