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 Kao Corporation’s senior vice president for ESG, Dave Muenz. Kao is the corporate owner of brands including Molton Brown and John Frieda.

In this conversation, Muenz outlines its approach to plastic packaging, covering reduction, replacement, recyclability and reuse. He shows some of the more innovative packaging formats the company is using, providing best-practice advice on scaling refill models.

He also outlines how business purpose and broader ESG agendas can form a strong foundation for ambitious action on plastics and the circular economy.

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.
