With edie readers working remotely or on furlough, this brand new series of video interviews keeps you connected to the inspirational business leaders who are continuing to drive sustainability and champion climate action from their own homes.

#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. 

The latest episode sees edie’s senior reporter Sarah George speaking with Biffa’s head of environment & external affairs Jeff Rhodes. 

Rhodes outlines how the UK’s waste management sector has continued to prioritise sustainability throughout the challenges posed by Covid-19. He then provides his thoughts on the Resources and Waste Strategy – for which several consultations have begun this year – and the UK Government’s broader approaches to incentivising reuse and recycling.

This #SustyTalk interview forms part of edie’s Circular Economy Week editorial campaign, running from March 22-26. The week will be jam-packed with exclusive interviews, podcasts, reports, webinars and in-depth feature articles – all dedicated to embracing closed-loop models. Click here for a full line-up of plans.
