The recent COP26 conference has stimulated a surge of interest in how we can make a difference as investors. Nick Lyth set up Green Angel Syndicate to solve that problem and in a wider ranging discussion we cover his story, experiences and philosophy.
There are many practical challenges, from finding the right companies, what could be their impact and how you measure that. We also discuss timescales, balancing the long-term view of an angel investor with the immediacy of the climate issue.
We also cover many of the wider aspects of the climate crisis. Nick's background in advertising gives an good perspective on the use of language and how the green movement has been losing that battle. We also discuss the role of politics in both environmental movements and investments.
