We interview Professor Martin Parker from the Bristol Inclusive Economy Initiative to learn how best to begin a sustainability journey. There are many challenges and potential pitfalls in becoming a sustainable business and in this interview we explore with Martin how academia and commerce can combine to best effect.

We also hear about the value of creating a local supply chain, reducing your carbon footprint and how collaboration and connection is the way forward. We agree that for many businesses, the commercial advantage of taking an early lead is likely to be a conversation that is well received within the organisation.
