Paper Straw is a blog about climate change, created as a way to share some of the observations on the topic, trying to make sense of the science and politics of environmental collapse we are witnessing. Expect many questions and few answers.
For better or worse, I work in finance. Retaining a dose of healthy scepticism, this blog will be taking a close look the ideas and practice of sustainable investing. Expect posts on ESG, impact investing and everything in between. Hopefully some readers will gain a better understanding of what they are looking at when they see an ad on the tube, asking them to put their money in a ‘green ISA’.
The aim is to cut through some of the noise, raise questions and capture new developments, good and bad. This blog will hopefully over time serve as a useful resource for those with an interest in the topics above. Or those who think my sense of humour is not completely atrocious.
