A standout

It’s a long road ahead in terms of getting the world to embrace and incorporate sustainable practices, but as this podcast shows, it doesn’t have to be a painful or unprofitable one.
Highly recommended listening for anyone interested in the future of socially and environmentally responsible business.

Clear, insightful and timely

Clear, insightful and timely questions make this program a worthwhile listen. The interviewer skilfully interweaves attention to real-life situations and issues, while keeping sight of the bigger, more holistic picture of corporate action - rare and much needed in this ever-changing business environment. This is a welcome podcast and I will be looking forward to more episodes!

Insightful for specialists & non specialists

This podcast provided me with so much insight into a world I’m interested in but know little about. Both interviewer & interviewee made complex and often highly specialised subjects both accessible and nuanced. I particularly enjoyed the discussions of how large corporations have challenged themselves to act more sustainably and the examples of the ways in which they have both succeeded and failed and why.
