Big Questions Facing Business Leaders for 2023

Episode 21

In the first episode of 2023 of the All In Sustainable Business podcast, Chris, David, and Mark welcome strategic advisor, speaker, and commentator on sustainable business, Mike Barry. In his past life, Mike helped to develop, launch and implement Marks & Spencer’s ground-breaking sustainability programme, Plan A (because there is no Plan B for the one world we have).

The conversation checks in on where exactly we all are on the sustainability journey, and explores the main trends and themes of the sustainability agenda heading into 2023, including leadership challenges, geopolitical risks, the ESG revolution, and where we’re at 7 years from when the SDGs and Paris Agreement benchmarks need to be fully implemented.

They also highlight some new social enterprises making major impact in some very creative ways, including Mondra, Foodsteps, and HowGood.
