Episode details

Mark Lewis is a world-leading expert on energy and environmental markets, and was one of the world's first carbon market analysts. What’s less known about Mark is his love of Shakespeare, and how he connects that with his work on climate change. We talked about his theory of change for finance and climate, how the 2008 Great Financial Crisis catalysed a Shakespeare reading marathon which has inspired and supported his work on climate change ever since, and why the world must at all costs avoid the calamity of Hamlet's indecision.
