And Irache Pardo, finance and treasury director for Spanish hi-tech business CIE Automotive on the impacts of sustainability and industry 4.0 technology on the manufacturing sector.

Plus: more work required to keep warming to 1.5C, Ikea’s “climate positive” programme, hotels and modern slavery risks, and $50m sustainability loan for Prada, in the news digest.
