With many edie readers still working remotely, this ongoing 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 Schillings partner Magnus Boyd, a lawyer who specialises in reputation protection. In recent years, climate-related reputation protection and broader sustainability topics have been one of Boyd’s key focuses. 

Boyd speaks about how climate considerations are becoming an ever-more important part of the reputational risk avoidance measures of businesses. The pair explore the implications of recent high-profile cases on greenwashing and discuss how courts can intervene with sub-par corporate climate action, as has been the case with Shell in recent months.
