Recorded during the Transatlantic Climate Bridge’s conference in July 2022, the third episode of the Climate Bridge Podcast discusses Canada’s climate diplomacy and the climate and energy outcomes of the G7 meetings. In conversation with Assistant Deputy Minister Catherine Stewart of Environment and Climate Change Canada, our hosts Tobias Bernstein (adelphi) and Luisa Kern (Polis180) took an in-depth look at the interlinkage of climate change and foreign policy, but also at the role of women and indigenous people in climate diplomacy. Focusing on how the green transformation towards carbon-neutrality can also be a just transition that leaves no one behind, the trio took a closer look at multilateralism, Canada’s federal structure, and how to navigate environmental policies in today’s geopolitical landscape.

After talking to Lisa Badum about German Climate Foreign Policy in our debut episode, the second episode of the Climate Bridge Podcast turns to the U.S. perspective on international climate policy. Hosts Mary Hellmich – adelphi - and Lars Feyen - Polis180 - speak with Sue Biniaz, John Kerry’s Deputy Special Envoy on Climate Change, about all things U.S. climate policy. The three discuss everything from how Biniaz’s team works both domestically and with international partners to implement initiatives such as the Global Methane Pledge (established at COP26 in Glasgow, the Pledge aims to reduce emissions of methane – a short-lived but immensely potent greenhouse gas – by 30% from 2020 levels by 2030), to the evolving nature of international climate policy in the face of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.  Mary, Lars, and Sue share their “climate policy crushes,” and Lars teaches the English-speaking audience a German climate-related legal term.
