Why optimisation of business strategy is essential to tackle climate change
15 Oct 21
Ian Welsh and Toby Webb
Scott Steedman, director general standards at BSI, outlines the background to the new London declaration commitment to embed climate science in all standards. He explains how standards – designed to be bodies of knowledge on what best business practice looks like – can assess carbon footprints, environmental impacts and all the climate change challenges that must be front and centre as the world economy decarbonises.
Plus: some reporting from this week’s future for plastics conference, picking up on some of the emerging themes from the event’s sessions and networking. There was a lot of positivity around the collaboration potential, but equally sober realism at the challenges involved in tackling plastic pollution, and developing the waste collection infrastructure systems, that can then lead to reuse and recycling at scale.
And: detail about what’s coming up on 20th October at free-to-attend half-day workshop on how business can empower, educate and build community resilience on climate change and human health. Event participants WBA’s Una Kent and Innovation Forum’s Toby Webb highlight how the discussion will focus on where the role of the private sector can make a real difference.
