The Sustainable Business Covered podcast: Episode 21 - Getting engaged with sustainability
It's all about engagement this month on edie and for this special episode of the podcast we sit down with the experts to discuss the most effective ways of ensuring your key stakeholders are on-board and engaged with your sustainability strategy.
In this 40-minute episode of the show, edie editor Luke Nicholls broadcasts live from offices in central London to bring you an insightful roundtable discussion with Costa Coffee's CSR programme manager Victoria Moorhouse and the Rainforest Alliance's marketing associate Reena Chadee.
Within the discussion, Moorhouse and Chadee discuss the various benefits of an ongoing partnership between Costa and the Rainforest Alliance as the two organisations look to drive CSR engagement among consumers and employees.
Moorhouse also provides an insight into how the recent coffee cup recycling debate has served to highlight the importance of positive consumer engagement on key sustainability issues; while Chadee explains how the Rainforest Alliance is driving engagament among an increasingly complex landscape of eco-labels, as the organisation approaches its 30th anniversary.
The podcast episode also touches on some of the key themes of two upcoming edie events: the Smarter Sustainability Reporting Conference on 1 March and the Sustainability Communications Conference on 16 May (click the links to find out more).
The month of February has seen edie shift the editorial spotlight to engagement, with a series of exclusive interviews and features drilling down on the most effective ways to bring the people you want on the CSR journey with you. Read all of our engagement-themed content here.
