The Sustainable Business Covered podcast returns for one final episode of 2018 to bring you yet more exclusive interviews, insights and trivia from across the green economy. 

The Christmas special begins with a chat with property developer Landsec’s head of sustainability Caroline Hill – dubbed the 'guest of Christmas past', having also appeared on the edie podcast this time last year.

Next up, Olam Cocoa’s vice president for sustainability Simon Brayn-Smith calls in live to discuss the chocolate business's approach to sustainable cocoa-sourcing and specifically how consumer demand is changing green business practices across the food industry.

And then the 'guest of Christmas future' appears in the form of The Body Shop’s international CSR director Christopher Davies, who discusses how the retailer is striving to achieve a sustainable future through an Enchanted Forest Christmas Campaign, which is set to restore 10 million square metres of Forest across the UK's Forest of Dean and Wye Valley.

Wrapping up the Christmas special, the edie team ends the year by hosting its very own 'big fat quiz of the year' – five questions about some of the biggest sustainability stories of the year. Can you beat the editorial team?
