Reforming Economics, Investment and Finance

Top speakers and influencers share with us how we can work together to make a difference.

Possibilities and challenges of rapidly halving the Global Carbon Budget.

We explore the possibility and challenges of rapidly halving the Global Carbon Budget by 2022.

How do we do this is the subject of our event.

Introducing new investment ideas, structures and models with top climate scientists, policy makers, green economists, bankers and city traders, we can create a fossil free, diverse, equitable, green dynamic beneficial economy

Groundbreaking research finds that 100 active fossil fuel producers are linked to 71% of industrial greenhouse gas emissions since 1988.  At the same time, scientific advances are making it possible to attribute responsibilty for extreme weather events to greenhouse gas emissions. Will the threat of litigation add to ethical considerations to accelerate divestment from fossil fuels?  Is Green Investment ready for a major switch in investment patterns? We explore these questions during the conference

Aims of our Green Economics Institute Delegation


1 Ratchet down to 2 tonnes of carbon per person on the planet within 5 years, which is by 2022.


2 Remove the 100  companies are responsible for 71% of historical carbon emissions and insist they switch now to renewables or close down.

3 Ask the 8 middle aged men, who own 436bln US$,  the same as the poorest 50% of the worlds population (3.6bln),  to give it all to the other half of the people on the planet, (rather than their own pet causes) equally divided amongst every single other person  (118USD each). (One company alone is worth 800bn US$ and its wealth could also be halved and  redistributed.) This will alleiviate the worst poverty, ensuring everyone has enough to eat and converging inequality in one move.


Get everyone checking their own carbon and reducing by 10 % within a month of the COP23 conference and ensure everyone enjoys this ground breaking action together. Using an app so everyone can work to ratchet down their own carbon under their own control.
