#SustyTalk is all about keeping edie’s loyal readers connected to sustainable business leaders across the world, whilst reminding us all that sustainability and climate action must go on through the current Covid-19 pandemic and beyond. It launched in the early stages of the pandemic in 2020 and has continued since then, keeping us connected to the inspirational business leaders who are continuing to drive sustainability and climate action.

Now, #SustyTalk is evolving from a video format to an audio-only format. This episode sees edie’s senior reporter Sarah George in discussion with packaging giant Ball Corporation’s vice president and chief sustainability officer Ramon Arratia. This episode has been recorded as part of edie’s month-long Net-Zero November editorial campaign which is running until Wednesday (30 November).

Ramon is on hand to reflect on Climate Week NYC 2022, including the collaborative work from the aluminum arm of the First Movers Coalition. Launched last year in a joint effort overseen by the World Economic Forum and US Climate Envoy John Kerry, the Coalition brings together corporates across the value chains of hard-to-abate, high-emission sectors to help scale innovative technologies and processes to drive deep decarbonisation.

Ramon also argues the case for companies to adopt circular economy principles as they work towards newly ambitious climate targets including long-term net-zero, outlining why he believes most will need to rethink their products and processes to deliver the transformative change needed.
