Join Jason Jay, Director of the MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative, for an exclusive fireside chat with Akshat Rathi, award-winning senior climate reporter for Bloomberg News about his new release “Climate Capitalism: Winning the Race to Zero Emissions and Solving the Crisis of Our Age".

On a journey across five continents, “Climate Capitalism” tracks the stories of unlikely heroes driving the fight against climate change, like the Chinese bureaucrat who did more to make electric cars a reality than Elon Musk. Through stories that bring people, policy and technology together, Akshat Rathi reveals how the green economy is not only possible, but profitable. This inspiring blend of business, science, and history provides the framework for ensuring that future generations can live in prosperity and that the wheels of progress don’t falter.

Akshat is the host of Zero, a weekly climate podcast for Bloomberg Green and writes a weekly newsletter on climate solutions. ( (

The Sustainability Initiative will be raffling off several copies of Rathi’s book to those who attend in person. Lunch will be provided to those attendees joining in person.
Food Provided (Vegetarian food options will be provided for our in person attendees)
