Young-Jin Choi (Germany) in conversation with Nico Andreas Heller
The Scope and Limitations of Impact Investing
Young-Jin is Director of Impact & ESG at Vidia Equity, where he builds on his experience as Head of Research, Impact Investing, at Phineo gAG. He is a passionate climate activist who utilises his professional expertise and networks to help accelerate the transformation of our civilization’s fossil fuel-based energy system.
In this dialogue Young-Jin talks about the scope and limitations of impact investing within this context and argues that strategic modifications of the current economic and financial system design, including focused regulatory measures, standards, incentives and additional public investments, enabled by a minimally functional democracy, are the key to accelerating the transition towards a negative carbon economy.
