It was great to have this chat with Nick Edgerton – his enthusiasm for sustainable investing is infectious, and whenever I talk to him I get the feeling that there’s no cutting corners in terms of creating positive impact economically, socially and environmentally. It was a wide ranging discussion, from Antarctica, to coconuts, yoghurt, EV’s, taxes and a lot in between – I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did!
