In this episode of Sustainability Talks, Patrick sits down with Simon Mundy, the author of ‘Race for Tomorrow’, a book about the global fight to respond to climate change.
About Simon Mundy
Simon spent two years travelling through six continents to tell the stories of the diverse cast of characters locked in this historic struggle to combat climate change – from communities hit by extreme physical shifts, to business leaders grappling with the implications for the world economy.
Born in the UK, Simon has reported for the Financial Times since 2010, and was recently appointed Moral Money Editor – covering the push for a cleaner and more sustainable world economy for the award-winning Moral Money platform and across the wider FT. Simon started his career in Johannesburg, where he joined the FT to cover Southern Africa. After a stint as a corporate reporter in London he spent seven years in Asia, heading the FT bureaux in Seoul and then Mumbai.
In this conversation Patrick and Simon discuss Simon’s experience as a leading voice at the crossroads of sustainability, finance and innovation and dig into to some of the examples of entrepreneurs across Europe delivering sustainability through innovation. They also discuss Simon’s broader experience writing about environmental issues and his first hand experiences that inspired his book ‘Race for Tomorrow’.
‘Race for Tomorrow’ is now on sale in 40 countries.
