Supply chain management has never been more important

Fri, 14 Jul 2017 15:49:15 GMT

Businesses should have environmental credentials at front of mind when beginning to build supplier relationships, seeking to link with companies that are open to new dialogues as to how sustainability can be enhanced across the value chain.



What if? An innovative outlook on the environment

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 18:10:56 GMT

This week, hundreds of people from the business world, academia and the general public are gathering in North East England for a very special festival of innovation, looking to address a range of environmental and societal issues.



Human rights due diligence: what should businesses do next?

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 16:04:01 GMT

I was invited to attend the International Bar Association (IBA) and OECD meeting at the OECD Global Form on Responsible Business Conduct in Paris this month. A group of lawyers, barristers, business leaders and academics met to discuss what is meant by 'human rights due diligence' and explore some case studies on how lawyers and advisors should tackle instances where human rights impacts can give rise to financial and legal risk.



The circular economy: an answer to the hourglass economy?

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 14:30:44 GMT

As a sustainability professional, I am immersed in many aspects of sustainability. But even if you are someone who doesn't, the phrase that is being heard all too often right now is "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer."



The truth about sustainable seafood

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 14:22:17 GMT

There are some incontrovertible facts about fish (if such things exist in this post-truth world) and they don't make pretty reading. Ninety percent of the world's fish stocks are either fully or overexploited and populations of marine species have halved in the last 40 years. All of this, while 500 million people rely on fish for food and their livelihood.



Working together for a better retailing climate

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 11:29:51 GMT

Changes to the sustainability landscape are gathering pace. This change will intensify in the coming decades as we face a changing climate and ever greater demands for finite resources. So what does the future hold for those in retail sustainability?



Brexit could give the waste sector the coherent, long-term framework it desperately needs

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 09:50:34 GMT

With the appointment of Michael Gove as the new Secretary of State at Defra, we now have an opportunity to determine the future success of the waste sector.



Living Labs to the rescue

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 09:00:00 GMT

Sustainability in all sectors can sometimes end up sitting in a silo. The language used to communicate what is actually a very simple and sensible premise is typically the biggest barrier. People hear the words 'environment', 'green' and 'sustainability' and turn off. It is dismissed as a nice idea but not something they have the time or resources to commit to addressing.
