I’m not sure that the climate change and sustainability community would include issues related to the pandemic, biodiversity, health equity, and modern slavery in their definition of ESG. Yet, today on RYA, we address all of these issues with our guests Chris Kline (Global Senior Principal for Sustainability and ESG at Cardno), Natalie Egnot (Epidemiologist at Cardno Chemrisk), and Seth Yoskowitz (Interim CEO, International Development at Cardno).
For those who are not familiar, Cardno is a global infrastructure, environmental, and social development company operating in more than 100 countries. It is a truly remarkable organization that partners with governments, NGOs, and corporations to address most, if not all, of the vexing environmental, health, and social challenges that persist globally.
You will learn a lot on this episode, including: whether solar panels contribute to noise pollution. Spoiler alert: they do not.
Tune in as we discuss:
- The impact of climate change on the developing world, and the measures being taken to stave off those outcomes
- How Cardno is addressing all three ESG categories
- The definition of modern slavary, and how Cardno helps its corporate clients address this crisis
