On the Mission Possible sofa with Victoria Burrows, Martin Gettings & Dorothy Maxwell

The fifth episode of our new sustainable business chat show sees World Green Building Council's project manager of Advancing Net Zero Victoria Burrows joined by Canary Wharf Group's head of sustainability Martin Gettings and House of Fraser's head of sustainability Dorothy Maxwell to discuss the built environment.

Broadcast live from edie Live 2018 in Birmingham, the Mission Possible sofa interviews offer up an array of the energy and sustainability industry’s leading lights to delve deep into some of the hottest industry topics – from onsite solutions and low-carbon vehicles through to green policy and the circular economy. 

Episode one saw Surfdome’s Adam Hall and A Plastic Planet’s Henri Allen discuss the plight of plastics pollution, while episode two saw Futerra’s Solitaire Townsend and the ICRS’s Anita Longley discuss the sustainability leaders of the future. In episode three, edie’s Luke Nicholls and E.ON’s chief executive Michael Lewis discussed what energy innovation can do to unlock sustainability opportunities.

In episode four, UK Green Building Council’s (UK GBC) head of industry engagement Alastair Mant was joined by the Environmental Industries Commission’s (EIC) executive director Matthew Farrow to discuss the role of collaboration.

The 15-minute chat sees the sofa guests discuss an array of levers that are impacting sustainability in the built environment. From technology and innovation to green policy, all three speakers explore options to enhancing the state of sustainability in the built environment and how companies can collaborate to move the trajectory forward.
