#7 Our Climate Future
As governments come under fire over a lack of action on climate change, it’s becoming increasingly clear that words are not enough. At PIDG we take our role in climate action seriously - it’s a major consideration in every single investment and operation decision we make. Lower income countries, those that PIDG operates in, may produce the least carbon emissions, but they’re the hardest hit by climate change. So how do we ensure investment is directed where it’s needed most?
In this special episode we hear from climate change expert Rachel Kyte, committee member for PIDG, Dean of The Fletcher School, and advisor to the UK government for COP26. To find out more about PIDG’s approach to climate action, visit our website.
#12 The PIDG Gender Equity Diversity and Inclusion initiative
A year on from our last International Women’s Day conversation about gender lens investing, much has been done to advance the agenda. PIDG’s own efforts have evolved, leading to the creation of the PIDG Gender Equity Diversity and Inclusion initiative, GEDI.
#11 Investing in Biodiversity and Nature
Many know about the climate crisis, but what’s often less covered is the biodiversity crisis. However, the two crises are intimately linked, and it’s critical that both are considered in our approach to investing in infrastructure. With the biodiversity conference COP15 underway we’re finding out how and why we need to take action to halt and reverse nature loss.
#10 PIDG at COP27
With the COP27 climate conference in Egypt now at a close, the PIDG team has been reflecting on the outcomes. With the focus firmly on climate adaptation and resilience, rather than emissions reductions, we ask - are our climate goals ambitious enough? Many of the countries in which PIDG operates are the most vulnerable to climate change, and that’s why it's working hard across its portfolio to invest in sustainable infrastructure.
#9 PIDG 2021 Annual Review: Empowering women
As we reflect on 2021, we see that despite the pandemic-induced challenges of the last two years, amazing developments have been made in providing infrastructure to those who need it most. In this current global climate, PIDG’s mission is more relevant today than when it was first established. And with 19 projects closed last year, and a continued commitment to the SDGs, progress is not slowing down.
