Episode 23 / James Cameron
Trade & Sustainability - The Radical in a Suit
About our Guest /
James Cameron is a barrister, independent adviser and social entrepreneur, and a recognised leader of the global climate change community. He is an expert on sustainability and trade policy – and as you can imagine he’s very much in demand in Britain right now, not only with the post-Brexit negotiations, but also since he was appointed as a ‘Friend of the COP’ for COP26, advising the Presidency.
James is a senior advisor for Pollination, a climate change advisory and investment firm, as well as System IQ, Tulchan Communications and AVAIA Capital. He also sits on the Advisory Board for Heathrow 2.0 and is a London Sustainable Development Commissioner. James was a co-founder and chair of Climate Change Capital, the world’s first green investment bank and sat on the board of GE Ecomagination, Green Running and ET Index.
Before that, James was co-founder of the climate change practice at Baker McKenzie, a negotiator on behalf of the Association of Small Island States (AoSIS) at the UNFCCC, and Senior Advisor to the Morocco and Fiji COP Presidencies. He has been a member of the UK Prime Minister’s Business Advisory Group and for eight years was Chair of the Overseas Development Institute (ODI).
James has held academic posts at Cambridge, London, Bruges and Sydney and is currently affiliated with the Yale Centre for Environmental Law and Policy.
