    In the last episode in our series of modern slavery podcasts, the PRI's Head of Social Issues, Bettina Reinboth speaks with Anders Stromblad, Head of Alternative Investments and External Management at AP2. There are currently 40.3 million people in modern slavery today. To bring this number close to zero by 2030, and reach the Sustainable Development Goal target 8.7, we would need to reduce the number of individuals affected by 10,000 a day.    The risks of modern slavery are increasing due to changes such as climate change, automation and migration, as they disrupt global labour markets and value chains.   In this episode, Bettina and Anders discuss how AP2 is addressing modern slavery and human trafficking across its investments, and what private equity investors can do to tackle the issue.

  • Sustaining healthy oceans: eliminating the negative impacts of ghost gear

    Sustaining healthy oceans: eliminating the negative impacts of ghost gear

    30/10/2019 Duración: 21min

    Oceans generate half of the oxygen we breathe, supply us with food and provide livelihoods – in short, they play a critical social, environmental and economic role for us.   But our oceans are in danger. Plastic accumulating in them has become a global crisis and at current rates, plastic is expected to outweigh all the fish in the sea by 2050. Abandoned, lost and discarded fishing gear – or “ghost gear” – makes up 10% of the plastic pollution in oceans every year. And by weight, ghost gear accounts for 70% of all floating macro-plastic debris. So, how is ghost gear impacting our oceans? What are seafood companies doing to mitigate negative impacts of ghost gear? And what can investors do on this critical issue? Join the PRI’s Head of Environmental Issues, Gemma James, as she delves into the topic. Gemma is joined this episode by guests Rory Sullivan, Co-Founder and Director at Chronos Sustainability, and Lynn Kavanagh, Campaign Manager at World Animal Protection.   Please see links below of projects discusse
