In this episode of the podcast, edie editor Luke sits down with The Body Shop’s director of corporate responsibility Chris Davis to discuss the retailer’s ambitious new CSR strategy, including a look at its new ‘Bio-Bridges’ programme referred to as ‘monkey dating’ – which aims to regenerate and reconnect 75 million square metres of damaged forests.

Then, reporter Matt heads to edie’s Sustainability Communications Conference in London, interviewing four expert speakers from Forum for the Future, Co-operative Bank, Land Securities and GSK about how to deliver effective communications strategies without putting people off the ‘S’ word (sustainability).

Later in the one-hour episode, Matt offers us his top pick from his ‘green innovation of the week‘ feature series, and fellow edie reporter George analyses his stand-out ‘sustainability success story’ of the past seven days.

edie readers can listen to this podcast for free, with no fees or registraton required. The podcast will be relevant for sustainability professionals, energy managers, resource efficiency experts and anyone else who has an interest in sustainable business and climate change.
