The Sustainable Business Covered podcast returns for one final episode of 2020 to bring you yet more exclusive interviews and insight as you cosy up ready for Christmas. 

This Christmas special begins with a chat with Levy UK & Ireland’s managing director Jon Davies, who provides a metaphorical Christmas dinner. He discusses how the UK’s hospitality sector is collaborating to combat food waste, promote climate-friendly diets and champion social sustainability. 

Then, Sarah dials Getty Images’s global head of creative insights Dr Rebecca Swift. What winter tale would be complete without a snowy scene? Swift talks us through the findings of Getty Images’ recent research into the imagery brands and media outlets use to communicate about environmental issues – and whether this approach is still winning hearts and minds. 

Last but by no means least, the team brings you a conversation with Modibodi’s chief executive officer Kristy Chong – in the vein that no Christmas in the UK is really complete without a call to Australia, or a sustainable stocking filler. Chong provides her best advice for purpose-led business, covering charity partnerships, supply chain engagement and innovative products. 

So grab a mulled wine (provided you’re not driving) and sit down by the fire to enjoy edie’s last podcast episode of the year. 

If you’re in the mood for more Christmas content, Matt has penned a blog reflecting on how the events of 2020 have reshaped the sustainable business space, and what priorities may be in 2021 and beyond. You can read his thoughts here

We’re also hosting a feature tracking the environmental impact of Christmas celebrations in numbers, from festive food waste and glittery wrapping paper to last-minute gifts ordered online. Read that article by clicking here.
