    Live from COP26 - The Carrot or the Stick Approach in Sustainability and Why Real Impact Happens at the Local Level with James George of Pyxera Global (Day 3 of 3)

    Live from COP26 - The Carrot or the Stick Approach in Sustainability and Why Real Impact Happens at the Local Level with James George of Pyxera Global (Day 3 of 3)

    ‘Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.’ Join host Sheri Hinish LIVE from the COP26 floor with returning guest James George (formerly of Ellen MacArthur Foundation and now with Pyxera Global). Part 3 unpacks which is more effective: the carrot or the stick approach. We also delve into where real impact happens and the answer may surprise you. Other topics include dialogue around policy and public-private partnerships. Amongst the walls and halls of pledges, panels, and provocative dialogue, this 3 part series will bring you the pulse of COP, the highlights and what doesn't make the headlines.


    Sending a big thank you for tuning in and please follow us on social media as we unveil insights LIVE from the COP26 Green Zone starting next week. “You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of a difference you want to make.”


    —Jane Goodall

    Live from COP26 - Creating ESG Transparency and Raging Against the Machine for Systems Change not Climate Adaptation with James George of Pyxera Global (Day 2 of 3)

    Live from COP26 - Creating ESG Transparency and Raging Against the Machine for Systems Change not Climate Adaptation with James George of Pyxera Global (Day 2 of 3)

    Join host Sheri Hinish LIVE from the COP26 floor with returning guest James George (formerly of Ellen MacArthur Foundation and now with Pyxera Global). Supply chains came up ALL OVER THE PLACE TODAY! Amongst the walls and halls of pledges, panels, and provocative dialogue, this 3 part series will bring you the pulse of COP, the highlights and what doesn't make the headlines.


    In Part 2, we explore how reliable is data + if disclosures really create transparency, financing the gap in climate transition, the types of data and insights that create space to rage against the machine (systems change/stress testing we need). 30 year legacy data feeds won't model scenarios for the next 10 years. We discuss a real world example shared over lunch that nearly had us in tears.


    We need data to see where we should focus our efforts, but not let perfect get in the way of starting. IPCC report came out 3 months ago, and not much heard now. We all have to change and disrupt our quality of life and the types of choices we make. If we don't do it now, it will only get worse.


    Where are the grown ups? Consumerism is destroying our planet.


    COP26 aspirational goals and commitments to impact include:


    1. Secure global net zero by mid-century and keep 1.5 degrees within reach


    Countries are being asked to come forward with ambitious 2030 emissions reductions targets that align with reaching net zero by the middle of the century.


    To deliver on these stretching targets, countries will need to:


    accelerate the phase-out of coalcurtail deforestationspeed up the switch to electric vehiclesencourage investment in renewables.

    2. Adapt to protect communities and natural habitats


    The climate is already changing and it will continue to change even as we reduce emissions, with devastating effects.


    At COP26 we need to work together to enable and encourage countries affected by climate change to:


    protect and restore ecosystemsbuild defences, warning systems and resilient infrastructure and agriculture to avoid loss of homes, livelihoods and even lives

    3. Mobilise finance


    To deliver on our first two goals, developed countries must make good on their promise to mobilize at least $100bn in climate finance per year by 2020. 


    International financial institutions must play their part and we need work towards unleashing the trillions in private and public sector finance required to secure global net zero.


    4. Work together to deliver


    We can only rise to the challenges of the climate crisis by working together.


    At COP26 we must:


    finalize the Paris Rulebook (the detailed rules that make the Paris Agreement operational)accelerate action to tackle the climate crisis through collaboration between governments, businesses and civil society.

    Live from COP26 -The Pulse of Progress or More GreenWashing with James George of Pyxera Global (Day 1 of 3)

    Where are all the grown ups? In early October, the IPCC issued a CODE RED for humanity. The 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference COP26 brings together the world's parties (leaders, industry giant, communities, voices unheard, and technologists) to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. The event focused primarily on climate action and Net-Zero goals.


    Join host Sheri Hinish LIVE from the COP26 floor with returning guest James George (formerly of Ellen MacArthur Foundation and now with Pyxera Global). You can't do business on a dead planet, right? Amongst the walls and halls of pledges, panels, and provocative dialogue, this 3 part series will bring you the pulse of COP, the highlights and what doesn't make the headlines.

    'Procurement with Purpose,' the Powerful Movement in Sustainability with Authors Mark Perera and Peter Smith

    'Procurement with Purpose,' the Powerful Movement in Sustainability with Authors Mark Perera and Peter Smith

    The decisions we make this decade are the most important in human history. You have to ask yourself: if our economic system actively destroys the biosphere and fails to meet many people's basic needs, what actually the point of it all? With COP26 weeks away, answering the call in climate action and equity for all, how will we emerge and redesign our world, our systems, supply chains, and economies?


    In episode 62, Sheri Hinish (SupplyChainQueen) explores key themes in our world's transformation with two thought leaders - Mark Perera (Founder of Procurement Leaders and CEO of Vizibl) + Peter Smith (CIPS and the epic OG of Procurement, literally). Mark and Peter have authored a new, provocative book called 'Procurement with Purpose' and encourage everyone to look deep in your supply chain to make a world of difference. (https://www.procurementwithpurpose.com/)


    Procurement with Purpose describes a powerful new movement - how organizations can use the money they spend with suppliers to help address these issues. That “buying power” is now being used to drive change across the business world. 


    Mark and Peter share case studies from firms including Unilever and Bayer that have taken the lead in Procurement with Purpose, as well as good practice advice on implementing these ideas  at all stages of the buying cycle. We unpack supplier diversity, and development. and insightful analysis of  “purposeful business” concepts and describe the key environmental, social and economic issues that can be addressed through these approaches. 


    Both an inspirational call to action, and a practical guide to implementing real change, Procurement with Purpose suggests that we can still change the world for the better thru disruptive thinking and disrupting incrementalism in sustainable transformation.


    Pre-order your copy here (https://www.procurementwithpurpose.com/) All profits from the book will go to support environmental, social and health charities. 


    The mystery of human existence lies in finding something to live for; what wakes you up each morning? Will you join us?

    Leading a Bold Path for Sustainable + Transparent Supply Chains with Sandra Macquillan (Mondelez)

    Leading a Bold Path for Sustainable + Transparent Supply Chains with Sandra Macquillan (Mondelez)

    "Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect. "– Chief Seattle, 1854


    In Episode 61, Sheri Hinish joins Sandra Macquillan, EVP + CSCO of Mondelez, an epic leader and Rebel extraordinaire who is forging a bold path for sustainability and being people positive across supply chains in the world we share.


    Sewing the threads of sustainability to form the basis of transparency is no easy task. In this episode, you'll learn how Sandra started her journey as an engineer and was drawn to supply chain because she loves people and the chance to make an impact.


    We unpack moving from ambition to insights in Consumer Sustainability and how Mondelez puts the consumer experience and building a better world at the heart of every transaction. This includes exploring cool innovation in agri-tech and empowering smallholders.


    Sandra describes how to fund sustainability in your organization + the transition from specialist to leadership in a vulnerable and elegant message to 'always be yourself' explaining why diversity wins.


    Lastly, we settle the debate of lowest cost versus risk competitiveness: is lowest cost a thing of the past in disruptive transition?

    Moving From Ambition to Action with Upstream Thinking for a Sustainable + Circular World with James George (Pyxera Global)

    Moving From Ambition to Action with Upstream Thinking for a Sustainable + Circular World with James George (Pyxera Global)

    If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go with others. In this chat with returning guest James George, previously at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and now in a new role at Pyxera Global, we explore a breadth of topics to redefine systems for sustainability, equity, and circularity-> starting with upstream thinking.


    Topics include: 1) defining accountability, 2) causality challenges, 3) fair living wage, 4) how lowest price encourages bad behavior in supply chains, 5) what is the total cost of ownership and why should we care, 6) the shift toward planet positive and how we will become consumers of environmental services, 7) getting the right info and source of truth in complexities (COP26), 8) the rise of the expert versus the rise of the connector, 9) the beauty of unusual collaborators to drive systems change for social impact.
