Net-Zero Navigators Podcast: Meet Iberostar's Dr Megan Morikawa
To mark Net-Zero November, edie is publishing a mini series of podcasts interviewing the trendsetters and trailblazers in the net-zero movement. Up next: Iberostar's head of sustainability Dr Megan Morikawa.
Following on from the UK Government’s world-leading net-zero carbon commitment, edie’s spinoff podcast series, Net-Zero Business, hears from the trendsetters and trailblazers of responsible businesses.
Since the UK Government set it’s 2050 net-zero target into law, more and more businesses are attempting to get ahead of the political curve by strengthening carbon and energy strategies and pledging to become net-zero businesses well before the 2050 deadline.
The Net-Zero Business podcast is a monthly digest of shorter episodes, each featuring an in-depth interview with a sustainability lead at a business that has set a net-zero target recently. For Net-Zero November, we're picking up the pace and publishing a new episode each week.
This latest episode features an in-depth interview with Iberostar’s global sustainability office director Megan Morikawa. Iberostar is one of the largest hotel groups in Spain and recently outlined plans to become carbon-neutral by 2030.
Iberostar plans to address at least 75% of its emissions in 2030 through nature-based offsetting and insetting – the process of sequestering carbon within its own operations and value chain.
Dr Morikawa outlines how the company plans to restore and create habitats across its locations - and its plans for engaging staff and visitors on its climate journey.
