#SustyTalk: Wincanton’s Steve Tainton on low-carbon transport and the evolving ESG debate
edie's #SustyTalk series of sustainability-related interviews continues with an exclusive discussion with Wincanton's head of sustainability and CSR, Steve Tainton.
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 Wincanton’s head of sustainability and CSR, Steve Tainton.
Having worked in sustainability in transport and logistics for more than a decade, Steve is well-placed to provide commentary on the UK Government’s recently-published Transport Decarbonisation Plan, assessing which measures are ambitious, which are not, and what more can be done to support the transition to net-zero in supply chains.
Steve and Sarah also discuss the ways in which definitions of – and key discussions around – CSR, ESG and sustainability have evolved in recent years, especially against the backdrop of the growing net-zero movement.
