Fighting Climate Change with Nature: A Conversation with Duncan Van Bergen from Shell

This week our guest is Duncan Van Bergen, Vice President of Nature Based Solutions for Royal Dutch Shell. What exactly are nature-based solutions?  Duncan explains how Shell is harnessing nature to help achieve Shell’s ambitious GHG emission reduction targets.

We learned that nature is a powerful weapon in the flight against climate change. Here are some of the questions that Peter and Jackie asked Duncan:  What are some examples of nature carbon storage projects? Do the economics and scale compare with other carbon storage options? How do you respond to the greenwashing criticism?  Will consumers pay more to offset their emissions with nature? What is the opportunity in Canada for these solutions?
