edie's flagship exhibition took place at the NEC Birmingham over two days this week, with hundreds of sustainability and energy management experts appearing across four stages to discuss an array of topics which were all bound by the manta of doing business better.
In this two-part episode of the podcast, the edie team broadcast live from the edie Live show floors, incorporating an array of interviews with some of the standout speakers from the event.
In this final, 45-minute part of the episode, edie editor Luke sets senior reporter Matt and report George the challenge of speaking to as many sustainability experts as they can find at the show - and the pair duly deliver with four fantastic interviews.
First, George heads to the Strategy & Innovation stage to speak with BT's principal consultant for sustainable business Steven Moore and Vodafone's senior environment manager Nicki Woodhead, who together discuss the future of sustainable business in the technology sector.
George then catches up with Giraffe Innovation's co-founder and director Rob Holdway, who discusses the key challenges and opportunities underpinning Britain's transition to a circular economy.
Later in the episode, Matt discusses supply chain ethics with Jo Mourant, a senior consultant at fashion sustainability organisation Made-By, before talking green energy finance with Triodos Bank's environment team manager Philip Bazin.
