This year's theme was wastewater and to mark the day, UNESCO and UN-Water (the United Nations inter-agency coordination mechanism for all freshwater related issues, including sanitation) released their annual World Water Development Report.

Reading the popular media or governmental press releases alone might lead us to despair at the prospects for renewables - something that's flavour of the month today can be an environmental pariah the next. So, what is really happening? Should we be battening down the hatches or making hay?

It's time to rip up the rule book when it comes to organisational change

Mon, 3 Apr 2017 15:50:12 GMT

Pretty much every organisation in the world is, right now, feeling the sharp wind of change. That change may be political, economic, technological, generational or structural - indeed many organisations I talk to are experiencing an intermingled brew of all of these at once.

Fri, 31 Mar 2017 10:17:31 GMT

With Donald Trump in the White House, and the UK's long-awaited triggering of Article 50, the established lore of 'a sustainable business is a responsible business' is once more open to question.

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 15:34:43 GMT

On 31 March 2017, the reporting requirements for companies that fall within the threshold of the Modern Slavery Act will have been in place for a year.

My team and I were proud and honoured to win the SME Consultancy of the Year Award at the Sustainability Leaders Awards 2017. But both prior to and post our edie Award success, people have asked me: "What is your take on sustainability now and in the future?"
