“So the question for us is how to focus on what is top of mind of people, jobs, top of mind? Well, we can create green jobs.

“When society decides they want something. When you have 125 countries now that have explicitly net zero targets. The market gets on with supply, and that's what we saw first in finance in many respects. Leaders in finance moving towards looking for the type of disclosure. Managing assets towards greater sustainability. But that has spread from the periphery to the mainstream in finance. And we're seeing an absolute proliferation of disclosure and objectives. Very importantly, objective towards moving to net zero.”
10.Wide shot, Larry Fink speaking
11.SOUNDBITE (English), Larry Fink, CEO of Blackrock
“I think more is being done right now by the private sector than in some of the public sector. Society has a better impact right now and changing corporate behavior. But society hasn't asked its own governance to focus on it. Right now, governments are focused on jobs and job creation,”
