Episode 96 of the Sustainable Business Covered podcast sees the team recording live shortly after the close of edie’s flagship and award-winning Sustainability Leaders Forum, which was moved to an all-new virtual format for 2021.

Following passionate keynote speeches from Global Optimism’s Tom Rivett-Carnac; the UK’s Net-Zero Business Champion Andrew Griffith MP and Forum for the Future’s Jonathon Porritt, among dozens of other discussions and workshops, edie gathered a range of Forum speakers to shed a bit more light on their sessions and topics. 

During this episode, WSP’s future ready innovation leader David Symons provides his advice on the sustainability skills professionals will need to hone in 2021 and beyond. 

Then, Sarah catches up with Canary Wharf Group’s head of sustainability Martin Gettings, who discusses the ever-evolving role of the sustainability professional in a fast-evolving world. 

Last but by no means least, Matt sits down to interview PMI’s chief sustainability officer Jennifer Motles. He asks: Can businesses in industries with high environmental or social impacts ever be truly sustainable?

Also, edie’s content director Luke Nicholls makes his triumphant return to the podcast, summarising his thoughts on the jam-packed event.
