Stephanie Jensen-Cormier: "There is an opportunity for us to innovate to get to a Net Zero Emission world"

Today's guest is Stephanie Jensen-Cormier, a biodiversity advocate living in Costa Rica.

In this episode, Stephanie discusses why we need to understand the urgency of reducing our emissions because it threatens our survival as a specifies. In addition, Steph explains why:

  1. government-funded projects need to embed top-notch environmental, social and corporate governance into projects e.g. China’s Belt and Road Initiative
  2. we as consumers should choose to eat a mostly plant-based diet, buy reusable diapers/nappies, and rent toys for our kids (not necessarily in that order)
  3. governments should stop subsidising the meat industry and reprioritise spending on education and sustainability (like Costa Rica did after demilitarisation)
