In this fascinating “eco-nomics” discussion with guests Professor Michael Grubb and Dr Alex Köberle we explore what choices and opportunities there may be to build a greener economy once the current world health crisis is over. What will the lasting impacts be on global markets and are we likely to see disruptive models emerging which will help drive us towards a more sustainable model for businesses?
