Climate Solutions is the award-winning podcast from the European Investment Bank. We know that stopping climate change is going to be very expensive. We’ll need to build more wind and solar farms. We’ll need to renovate buildings and electrify cars. We’ll need new technologies we haven’t even thought of yet. This is why we need green finance. And it’s why you should subscribe to the new season of Climate solutions: A dictionary of green finance. New episodes starting from Thursday, April 22nd (Earth Day)!  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

If there were a contemporary equivalent of the Beach Boys, they’d be singing about their monthly bus tickets and offering to take their girlfriends for a ride on an electric bike. Total global emissions come from a few main areas of human activity—energy, industry, agriculture…and transport. Our experts look at how mobility will get greener to stop climate change.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
The price of what you buy. It’s not the first idea that comes to you, but it makes sense. If things that cause climate change cost more—and things that don’t cause climate change cost less—which things would YOU buy? Are people ready actually to pay to stop climate change? Our experts look at the possibility that possibility that the price of goods will be a decisive factor in stopping climate change.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Are you making radical lifestyle changes to stop climate change? Limited efforts? Do you want to change, but can’t do it? Or do you think you don’t need to make a contribution? We’ll tell you whether you’re trying harder than the 30,000 people in our big climate survey, and our experts explain what that means for the future of humanity.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
