The show features live in-the-studio guests, leader interviews, need-to-know round-ups, listener quizzes and more – all wrapped up into monthly episodes.


Episode eight kicks off with the edie team (Luke, Matt, Sarah and Jade) getting us up to speed on some of the hottest sustainable business stories of the month. These include recent rulings against advertising campaigns from Shell, Repsol and Petronas on the grounds of greenwashing.

The other top stories of the month discussed in this episode include:

The team then dive into another hattrick of special guest interviews:

  • First up, Sarah speaks with Springwise’s content director Angela Everitt. Springwise is edie’s innovation content partner and a wealth of information about the evolution of sustainable startups and scale-ups across the world. Angela helps us assess how these businesses can access better support to scale from larger players.
  • Our second guest is Sophie Bakalar, partner at Collaborative Fund. She gives us a behind-the-scenes look into the world of venture capital for cleantech, and discusses how we can bridge the finance gap for sustainable material innovations.
  • Last but by no means least is an interview with MSC Cruises’ sustainability director Linden Coppell. Linden speaks with Matt about the innovations needed in the maritime sector for it to achieve net-zero by mid-century.

Listeners keen to learn more about green innovation are encouraged to attend edie’s upcoming online event on Wednesday 28 June.
