Sustainability Uncovered Podcast episode 4: Net-zero jargon, regenerative fashion and plant-based futures
Fresh from reporting on the climate talks at Davos and the UK’s Net-Zero Review, Luke, Matt and Sarah return to a chilly podcast studio to explore three of the most important sustainability topics of 2023: Net-zero communications, fast fashion alternatives, and plant-based diets.
Sustainability Uncovered, hosted in partnership with Lloyds Bank, is the evolution of edie’s long-running Sustainable Business Covered podcast. Whether you’re a business leader, climate expert, environmental professional, youth activist, or just someone with a passion for all things sustainability and climate action – this podcast is for you.
For our fourth episode of the series – recorded from edie’s HQ in West Sussex – Luke, Matt and Sarah serve up three interviews, all connected by a jargon-busting theme.
We begin with a two-minute Net-Zero Jargon Buster – breaking down the need-to-know decarbonisation terms that have emerged over the past couple of years – before Matt speaks to Interface’s head of sustainability (EAAA) Jon Khoo to discuss the flooring manufacturer’s carbon-neutral aims.
Next, to mark Veganuary, Luke sits down with the Plant-based Food Alliance UK’s chief executive Marisa Heath who shares some eye-opening statistics about the environmental benefits of going meat-free and provides a clear call-to-action for the Government.
And last but not least, Sarah pays a visit to a pop-up regenerative fashion hub in Stratford, London, organised by The Textiles Circularity Centre at the Royal College of Art (RCA). There, she speaks with the RCA’s director of the Materials Science Research Centre Professor Sharon Baurley, who discusses what it will take to transition to a circular fashion economy.
And of course, no episode of Sustainability Uncovered would be complete without some sustainability small talk. The episode also sees the edie trio share their New Year’s Resolutions along with some film and TV suggestions to see you through the winter.
