 Angela Schwarz

"We’ve had over 250 years of incredible industrial evolution without appropriately pricing in climate impacts. Now we’ve woken up and realised we have to price carbon into every aspect of our human existence, and we have a very short window to facilitate meaningful change. It’s an incredible undertaking that we need to do globally, and with speed and efficiency."

— Angela Schwarz, Energy Risk, May 2022
