In today's episode of The Green Investor podcast, we speak with Chris Lewis, head of Global Infrastructure at EY, to talk about the ways governments are investing in sustainable infrastructure projects. Chris talks about which countries are doing it right, which industries have the most wind and money at their backs, and what governments need to do in order to accelerate progress. Plus, Big Money is putting big money to work in ESG funds and ETFs despite the backlash against the theme. We'll name names, and follow the money.
