Every breath you take: Population growth v CO2

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 15:30:16 GMT

The link between climate change and CO2 might not be as simple as people think. Has anyone taken into account human population, respiration and CO2 concentrations?

Soy and deforestation: the easiest step to take is also the most impactful

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 17:59:33 GMT

If we reflect on the prominent environmental issues of 2016, those that received widespread media coverage: the Paris Agreement, renewable energy, palm oil, fracking and air pollution, amongst others, would undoubtedly spring to mind. Few headlines seemed to touch on the deforestation sweeping across South America to give way to an expanding soy industry and its relationship to meat and dairy.



A brave new era of sustainability leadership

Mon, 9 Jan 2017 12:14:07 GMT

It's fair to say that 2016 will go down as one of the more memorable years in our history, but perhaps for all the wrong reasons.



Want a role in sustainability? Lead from where you are

Thu, 5 Jan 2017 15:05:15 GMT

As chair of the ICRS, one of the questions I'm asked the most is 'how can I get a role in corporate responsibility and sustainability (CRS)?'



Cluedo or Clueless? Company approaches to modern slavery statements

Thu, 5 Jan 2017 14:57:53 GMT

Whilst the other board games that I have referred to in my series of blogs about supply chain transparency have been reliant on dice and a bit of luck, I move now to the game of Cluedo, where players try to figure out the three main facts of a murder: the location of the murder, the murderer, and the murder weapon. It's a board game about deduction.

Closing the gap: Five steps to improve building performance

Tue, 6 Dec 2016 10:32:35 GMT

It is commonly accepted that most of our non-domestic buildings are not performing as well as they could be, in terms of cutting carbon, reducing energy usage and meeting occupiers' needs.



What does the future hold for the Heat Network Regulations?

Mon, 5 Dec 2016 16:38:39 GMT

The Heat Network (Metering and Billing) Regulations 2014 are designed to drive carbon savings by motivating energy efficient behaviour through charging end-users for the heating and cooling they consume. The first compliance deadlines relating to building level meters and Notifications have now passed, but many organisations are yet to meet the requirements.



Joining forces to fight food poverty

Mon, 5 Dec 2016 14:46:07 GMT

As the winter nights draw in and the end of the year begins to loom, I've been reflecting back on 2016 and what FoodCycle and our volunteers have achieved.



New five pound note: the price of sustainability?

Fri, 2 Dec 2016 16:19:04 GMT

Sometimes sustainable decisions can have unfortunate consequences - is the new five pound note an example?



Is it all worth it?

Thu, 1 Dec 2016 18:28:24 GMT

Those who really want to solve coffee cup recycling, please stand up

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 09:46:06 GMT

Simply Cups has certainly benefitted from the paper cup saga with many new members having recently signed up. Nevertheless, there are still many sections of the supply chain that have not yet joined and so here are my thoughts on why this might be the case.



Supermarket food waste grabs headlines but the bigger story is in the supply chain

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 09:38:48 GMT

Food waste may not be the most glamorous of topics, yet in the last year it has been the focus of a BBC1 series, made front page news in the London Evening Standard on a near-nightly basis and, perhaps most surprisingly, caused Tesco CEO Dave Lewis to hug Sainsbury's CEO Mike Coupe live on stage at last month's Consumer Goods Forum in Paris.



Living beyond the moment: Why science-based targets and coalitions are the key to unlock climate action urgency

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 16:09:09 GMT
