Net-Zero Navigators podcast: Meet Dentsu International's chief sustainability officer Anna Lungley
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: Dentsu International's CSO Anna Lungley.
Following on from the UK Government’s world-leading net-zero carbon commitment, edie’s new 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 Dentsu International's CSO Anna Lungley, in which she provides more information on the media and communications firm's plans to reach net-zero by 2030. The company has committed to reducing its absolute carbon emissions by 46% within a decade – an ambition it hopes to have certified by the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) in line with 1.5C.
Lungley describes Dentsu's plans for tackling its direct and power-related emissions, and for working with clients and supply chains to address Scope 3 emissions and increase engagement on environmental issues. She also outlines best-practice advice for ensuring that climate action has executive-level buy-in.
The episode also features an interview with EDF - the headline sponsor of Net-Zero Live. EDF's B2B propositions manager for electric vehicle (EV) solutions, Hugo Herrman, discusses how vehicle-to-grid fits in with the net-zero transition at a national level - and how businesses can reap the benefits. Further information on the topics discussed can be found here.
