edie’s Sustainability Leaders Forum: As it happened
This week is one of the biggest of the year in the sustainability and energy calendar, with edie hosting its Sustainability Leaders Forum and Awards, as well as the official launch of the UK-hosted COP26 climate conference. Recap the week through our live blog for all the latest from these events and beyond.
The Sustainability Leaders Forum saw companies, individuals and organisations championing sustainability gathering to discuss the emergency response in transitioning to a net-zero economy. Taking place at London’s Business Design Centre on Tuesday and Wednesday (4 & 5 February), the event garnered more than 400 attendees, with speakers including former Irish President Mary Robinson; TerraCycle CEO Tom Szaky; Firmenich CEO Gilbert Ghostine; IPCC working group chair Jim Skea and Futerra co-founder Solitaire Townsend.
Directly after the second day of the Forum (5 February), the Sustainability Leaders Awards recognised the people, projects, products and organisations that are together redefining what it means to be a sustainable, ethical and responsible business.
edie ran a live blog offering the latest news and views from both events, and for other exclusive content on sustainable business leadership. Recap the week here.
