PRI’s Jasper Cox speaks with Joanna Woods and Susan Burns about how climate change affects sovereign bonds through both physical risk and transition risk, and how investors can measure this.
Market practitioners discuss the reasons why, despite lagging compared to other fixed income sub-asset classes, investors in securitised products are sharpening their focus on ESG consideration. From regional differences between the US and European markets to the emerging of new ESG-labelled products, the podcast explores the drivers behind growing interest as well as the challenges that investors encounter as they begin to incorporate more systematically ESG factors in the evaluations of this sophisticated asset class.
In this episode of the PRI’s human rights podcast series, the PRI’s Nabylah Abo Dehman speaks to Jennifer Bates, an Amazon worker who played a key role in organising the union drive in Bessemer, Alabama and Corey Klemmer, Director of Engagement at Domini Impact Investments.

In the second part of the podcast, Ms Klemmer shares her reaction to Ms Bates’ testimony, the allegations of union-busting at Amazon and describes how investors can engage with Amazon on current practices.
