Episode 98 of edie’s Sustainable Business Covered Podcast has been created to mark International Women’s Day 2021 – an event with the theme ‘Choose to Challenge’.

edie’s senior reporter Sarah George and Women in Sustainability’s Rhian Sherrington co-chair this episode, delivering three exclusive interviews with women working to make the built environment and energy sectors more sustainable and inclusive.

First up, architect Jo Cowen outlines how businesses can collaborate to deliver a more socially inclusive built envionment, that supports wellbeing, as the transition to net-zero continues. 

Then, the National Grid’s head of UK Strategy Claire Dykta gives her thoughts on how we can encourage more women into sectors like energy, engineering and business management – and why this will be crucial to climate action. 

Last but by no means least is an interview with Grosvenor UK and Ireland’s executive director of sustainability and innovation, Tor Burrows. Tor gives her views on what it means to ‘choose to challenge’ as a sustainability professional in the current climate.
