The corporate challenges in tackling climate change at pace
19 Aug 21
This week: Myles McCarthy, director for implementation and e-mobility at the Carbon Trust, talks about the big climate challenges for business in the run-up to COP26. He argues that while there are some big step-change targets being set across industries, the challenge now is in making the progress necessary at scale and pace, and developing the technology and models that will be required.
And, Toby Webb and Peter Stanbury discuss the next steps in Innovation Forum’s action research project into smallholder farmer resilience.
Plus: implications of IPCC’s latest report; New York pension fund reviewing fossil fuel assets; Lidl UK to be carbon neutral by 2022; Barry Callebout, Nestlé and Proforest develop sustainable coconut supply chain scorecard; and, new apparel transparency pilot involving Next, New Look and H+M Group, in the news digest.
Host: Ian Welsh
