Play • 31 min

Unlock the secrets of transforming good intentions into actionable plans in the face of climate crisis with our special guest, Richard Lupo, managing director of Shift Environment and author of Happiness by Numbers. Lupo shares his insights on the UK's march towards achieving net zero and how climate change influences our day-to-day lives. AWA's Lara Al Ansari and Brad Taylor also join us, fresh from the AWA Institute's event, 'Beyond Green', sharing their thoughts on making net zero a part of corporate culture. We stress the fact that for any significant change to occur, our well-meaning intentions need to evolve into actionable strategies.

We delve into the potency of incentives and nudging in encouraging greener modes of transport and fostering sustainable habits at work. We examine how leadership styles and corporate culture can enable sustainability initiatives and ensure all are included in the NetZero journey. Our conversation emphasizes clear communication, rational understanding and emotional engagement as essential tools in driving change. Prepare to rethink your sustainability strategy as we discuss the importance of a clear vision and an actionable plan in shaping a sustainable future.
