On the sidelines of the COP28 UN climate change summit in Dubai, Colin Tate AM, founder and managing director of Conexus Financial (publisher of Investment Magazine), spoke to Indian-British industrialist Sanjeev Gupta, owner of Liberty House, InfraBuild and GFG Alliance, about the path to net zero.

In this exclusive podcast, Gupta discusses the concept of “green steel”, role for hydrogen in reducing emissions, his plans for the GFG-owned Whyalla steelworks in South Australia, how the world views Australian government responses to the energy transition and the opportunity for institutional capital, including Aussie superannuation funds. Gupta also opens up about the “seismic” impact of the collapse of Australian-founded financier Greensill Capital on his global business empire.

The podcast’s release comes as the summit concluded in the UAE, with a historic agreement to transition the global economy away from fossil fuels.
