Fire: Net-Zero Plasma Diamonds

Cambridge Associates

Fire is often a marker associated with the worst effects of climate change. But what if fire could actually be harnessed to help reverse it?

In this episode, we meet Diamond Foundry, a company revolutionizing the diamond industry with their affordable, lab-created diamonds—free from the myriad of problems associated with the mining process. We’ll learn about the social and environmental impacts of this exploding industry and how investors are rethinking the carbon footprints of their portfolios.

We’ll hear from Mona Akhavi (Diamond Foundry); James Joaquin (Obvious Ventures); Dame Caroline Mason (Esmee Fairbairn Foundation); and Simon Hallett (Cambridge Associates).
