#SustyTalk: Talking purpose-led business for B-Corps Month
edie's #SustyTalk interview series continues with an exclusive panel discussion, held in celebration of B-Corps Month.
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 senior reporter Sarah George hosting an exclusive panel talk with four expert B-Corp representatives, namely:
- Mark Cuddigan, chief executive at Ella’s Kitchen
- Joanna Dai, founder of Dai Wear
- James Bidwell co-founder and chair, Re_SET and Springwise
- Steve Watters, project manager at Paradigm Norton
The five discuss what the certification process is like for B-Corps, whether the accreditation is right for all business sizes and sectors, and what can be done to make purpose-led, sustainable business business-as-usual.
This panel was held to mark B-Corp month, March 2021. There are currently more than 3,500 certified B Corporations globally, spanning more than 70 countries. The certification first launched in the UK and there are now more than 200 UK-based B-Corps, with some of the best-known including Innocent Drinks and JoJo Maman Bebe.
