At the time of recording, Australia is experiencing unprecedented bush fires, with huge swathes of the country engulfed by flames.
As of 20 January, twenty-eight people have died, close to 2,000 homes have been destroyed and a billion animals have been killed. Once again, the physical and economic threats of climate change are being brought to the fore.
In this episode of the PRI podcast, the PRI's CEO Fiona Reynolds speaks to Australians working in the responsible investment space who have their own experiences of the fire:
They discuss how they were personally affected by the fires; and what the implications of climate crises are for investors.

In this episode, the PRI's CEO, Fiona Reynolds, speaks with our very special guest, Ted Kennedy, Jr.
As a paediatric bone cancer survivor and amputee, Ted has been an active leader in the movement to expand opportunities for persons with disabilities. As well as a leading healthcare regulatory attorney, he is the chair of the board of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD). He also advises employers on best practices and compliance with the Americans with Disability Act, as well as lectures worldwide on healthcare policy and disability law.
Ted is also involved with The Disability Equality Index, America's leading corporate benchmark tool for disability equality inclusion.
Fiona and Ted discuss why disability inclusion in the workplace is an 'S' issue for investors, and why they should look at diversity from a strategic perspective.
