To take us through the global tax earthquake we welcome Marcel Olbert, Assistant Professor of Accounting at London Business School. Marcel is a rising star in the world of sustainable finance academia – and the youngest professor we’ve had on the podcast so far!

An expert in global taxation, disclosure and transparency, and carbon policy design, Marcel is rapidly making his mark publishing fascinating papers on everything from the sustainability of Private Equity to the challenge of regulating tax havens. Be prepared for new angles, unexpected findings, and more than a few unintended consequences!

” …private equity investors still set out to increase returns. And I think the idea is to incorporate ESG performance as part of the financial value creation process … ESG should not be one part or side strategy, but you should fully embrace it …”


Conversations on Climate is a podcast produced by United Renewables in association with the London Business School Energy Alumni Club. 

It brings together the best minds from academia and business, to offer their experience and expertise in the face of climate change –from game theorists to corporate diplomats, and oil industry veterans to micro-algae entrepreneurs.

We talk about how the scope of the challenge before us is beyond that of any one individual or any one solution. We listen to thinkers, researchers, policymakers, and business leaders. They discuss a diversity of ideas and solutions to global climate and environmental issues and why they matter.
