On Wednesday 18 January, Heathfield Careers and Outreach department welcomed Andrew Steel, Global Group Head (CEO), Sustainable Fitch. Andrew works in sustainable finance and spoke about the Environment, Net Zero and Investments. The topics discussed were how we can apply our knowledge to find solutions for complex problems. Also, how our increasing population, consumption and globalisation has contributed to global warming and what we can all do as individuals to help reduce this.
The discussion on the environment showed the ‘green’ sector as growing rapidly, especially green investment. The talk was attended by all year groups. They enjoyed asking lots of questions, everything from technology solutions to macroeconomics.
