Heroes of Net Zero
Industry leaders committed to their sustainability transition.
“When it comes to sustainability and the journey to Net Zero, everybody wants to know what everybody else is doing and understand the experience they've had. Learning from each other is crucial to driving collective success and long-term results.”Victoria Read Relationship Director Agriculture, Lloyds Bank, South and East England
Faith in Nature, Manchester
Natural beauty brand, Faith in Nature, has been creating natural, vegan and cruelty free products for over 40 years. The business is an established example of how being tied to an environmentally conscious agenda drives growth and attracts customers, and at launch it was ahead of its time. The business is now ensuring its approach, ethos and products matches the new wave of sustainability conscious consumers and growing demand.
Teemill is a technology business with sustainability at its core. It was founded to build more sustainable supply chains within the fashion world and it's now making a difference by shifting behaviours to be more sustainable in more ways than one. By offering technology that enables clothes to be made once an order is placed, Teemill reduces the amount of pre-produced clothes that go to landfill. This prompts consumers to think about what they really want and need when it comes to fashion.
Residential house builder Abel Homes has been a leader in sustainability for much of the 30 years it has been building homes across Norfolk. The firm has built its success around a concept it calls ‘liveability’, recognising that the way people use their homes and living them should guide the product - and increasingly energy efficiency and sustainability have been important factors in translating that concept into reality.
"Seeing and hearing the stories of what businesses are doing is such a help to other organisations. It helps business leaders to understand that people just like them are dealing with these changes, decisions and challenges too. It's important that we all recognise the power of shared learning and using the experiences of our networks to learn. Working together will help us make a real difference."David Amos Relationship Director, Lloyds Bank, Chichester
