Michael Greenstone Talks Climate Change with Goldman Sachs

On the heels of a climate-focused World Economic Forum in Davos, the unveiling of Europe’s new Green Deal, and increased attention on climate change by the world’s largest asset managers and banks, Allison Nathan, a senior strategist for global investment research at Goldman Sachs, interviewed co-Director of the Climate Impact Lab Michael Greenstone. Their conversation was part of a Goldman Sachs’ “Top of Mind” podcast and a report on “Investing in Climate Change.” Michael Greenstone spoke with Goldman Sachs' Allison Nathan about the importance of pricing carbon to unleash the power of markets and innovators to find the most cost-effective climate solutions, and how the social cost of carbon can help set pricing policies.
