20/30 Visions #7: Nick Hurd on how Governments can help to drive change

Welcome to 20/30 Visions, a new Bridges series in which we ask experts and thought-leaders from around the globe: what needs to change if we want to build a more sustainable and inclusive future in the next decade? And how do we make that change happen?

In the aftermath of COP 27 in Egypt, this felt like the perfect week to talk about the role of government and multilateral institutions in driving the change we need. We're delighted to be joined by the Rt Hon Nick Hurd, a former UK Government minister and now chair of the G7 Impact Taskforce. In our interview, we discuss:

  • How the UK Government helped to accelerate two key markets in the UK
  • Why better cooperation with the private sector has to be a key priority
  • The positives from COP 27 - and the clear negatives
  • The need for stronger accountability frameworks
  • The critical importance of good leadership (both political and corporate)
  • And more
