I’ve spent the majority of my working life manufacturing ever more sustainable food with Associated British Foods. Recently I moved into the Health and Wellbeing sector with Walgreens Boots Alliance. During this time, I’ve saved more than 120,000 trees being felled from unsustainable sources, shifted 7,500 tonnes of paper to FSC certified, increased responsible sourcing of high-risk food commodities to 95%, reduced factory carbon emissions by 30%, and reduced food miles for just one customer by 230,000 – enough to fly them to the moon! I couldn’t have achieved a single one of these things without the support of colleagues who were willing to try something different.
