“The Blue Earth Summit is a place to discover a modern way of working that is good for the planet and helps us retain and inspire staff. The final question we ask ourselves before starting a project: is this going to make the world better for other people’s grandchildren? And if the answer is yes, we do it; if it’s no then we don’t. Everyone thinks sustainability is really complicated but if you ask yourself this question, then it’s not. It also ensures long-term thinking which is always better for the environment.”
