Mission Possible Partnership: Elevating the role of sectors in the global story of decarbonisation
Alex Cameron, Founder of Decarb Connect & Paul Bodnar, Managing Director, Rocky Mountain Institute
In this episode, Alex talks with Paul Bodnar, Managing Director of Climate Finance at Rocky Mountain Institute about the need to elevate sectors in the global discussion of decarbonisation. The Mission Possible Partnership seeks to build on what the Paris agreement did for nations and we talk about the set up, purpose and core supports that it can offer to industrial leaders globally.
Paul Bodnar brings extensive experience of climate finance and policy from his early career in investment through to his role in the Obama administration and his more recent leadership role at the Rocky Mountain Institute. Amongst the many projects he has led and influenced, Paul took a principal role in formulating the U.S. strategy for the Paris Climate Conference. He is also a senior associate (non-resident) at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and serves on the Board of the Carbon Tracker Initiative.
Hot on the heels of the Mission Possible Partnership’s launch at Davos, Alex and Paul talk about the MPP, the mechanisms that can be developed to link finance and investment to improving co2 per tonne of product – and about the how the nation-based approach developed in the Paris agreement can be augmented by platforms and policy that support the major emitters (which work across borders) in delivering net zero.
