Global Warming and the Voluntary Carbon Market with Rachel Kyte of Tufts University
Play • 24 min

There are so many changes happening in energy transformation and climate policy. One of the best ways to keep learning about issues in this space is to speak with thought leaders who are helping to spread awareness.

One of those thought leaders is Rachel Kyte, Dean of The Fletcher School at Tufts University. Rachel has extensive experience in sustainability in the private sector and with the World Bank. That’s why we are thrilled to have her as a guest for this episode of the Siemens Energy Podcast.

Host Amy Pempel begins the discussion by having Rachel articulate the “why” for decarbonization—not just economically, but ethically.

Amy and Rachel also discuss:

  • The historic responsibility of industrialized countries to deal with de-carbonization
  • The corresponding responsibility of fast-growing countries to be thoughtful in how they use and deploy energy
  • The voluntary carbon market

You’ll also hear Rachel’s concerns about vested interests that are trying to trade on energy poverty instead of taking a serious look at better solutions for all stakeholders.
