With edie readers working remotely or on furlough, this brand new series of video interviews keeps you connected to the inspirational business leaders who are continuing to drive sustainability and champion climate action from their own homes.

#SustyTalk is all about keeping edie's loyal readers connected to sustainable business leaders across the world, whilst reminding us all that sustainability and climate action must go on through the current Covid-19 pandemic and beyond. 

The latest episode sees edie’s content editor Matt Mace discuss Kingfisher’s approach to biodiversity and sustainability with the company’s head of responsible business and sustainability Caroline Laurie.

Last year, B&Q and Screwfix owner Kingfisher built on its overarching vision of becoming a 'net-positive' business with a 2025 commitment to create more forests than it uses. In this video, Laurie discusses the rise in prominence of biodiversity as a potential solution to help combat the climate crisis and the key considerations that businesses should explore.

Additionally, Laurie discusses the £550m revolving credit facility agreement (RCF) with interest rates linked to environmental and community targets that Kingfisher signed for earlier this year.
