With edie readers working remotely or on furlough, this 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 the Coca-Cola Company’s sustainability director for Europe, Therese Noorlander. 

Noorlander discusses how the company is working with its bottlers and suppliers to accelerate the net-zero transition. The Coca-Cola Company’s largest bottle in Western Europe, CCEP, notably set a 2040 net-zero target in 2020.

She also outlines the business’s plans on water stewardship and plastics – two of its most material topics – in 2021, in line with changing consumer and investor demands and improved scientific research. 

Noorlander speaks ahead of her appearance at edie’s Sustainability Leaders Forum next month, where she will be delivering a session on consumer campaigns and employee engagement along with City to Sea. Experts from the likes of Unilever, CDP and the World Green Building Council will also be speaking at the virtual, three-day conference.
