Investing in our future: Is time the most potent prism for climate action?
Short-termism in the financial system undermines effective climate action, putting our ability to prevent catastrophic climate change at risk.
To show what is possible at the level of whole systems transformations – i.e. what a long-term approach to decisionmaking might look like and how it could be embedded into global finance and other macro-systems – EIT Climate-KIC is working with partners to design a ‘Deep Demonstration’ of Long-Termism.
This report concludes that addressing short-termism in finance is a critical part of unlocking effective investment into sustainability.
