In the first in our Resource Revolution leader video interview series, independent commentator Peter Jones talks candidly about the mounting pressures waste companies face as businesses look to become more resource-efficient.

Climate change minister Greg Barker flipped the switch to activate Europe's largest ground source heat pump at a multi-million pound London shopping centre.

Built on the site of post-World War II office block the shopping centre which, despite the economy has been 80% occupied, was set a planning permission demand of sourcing at least 10% of its energy from renewable sources. Although initial tests are not yet complete Land Securities, the firm who own and built the centre, claim the ground source pump could deliver between 15 and 20% of the sites total energy need.
