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 PepsiCo’s chief sustainability officer Jim Andrew, who was appointed to the role after working as executive VP for the company’s  SodaStream and Beyond the Bottle work. 

Andrew discusses the ways in which the business – and the broader food and beverage sector – has used sustainability to respond to the context of 2020, including the pandemic, US election and Black Lives Matter movement. 

He also provides behind-the-scenes learning from the company’s work to launch its first green bond and to allocate the raised funds.
