As we say in this intro to this week's episode the question isn't "why are marketers talking about environmental issues", but "why haven't we spoken about it sooner"? Sustainability and activities on behalf of our planet are at the centre of many brands' activities, but even for those where that isn't the case, it is at least a growing concern. So how do we speak on behalf of brands around sustainability - and how can marketers lead the way on environmental issues?

To discuss all this and more, The Drum's senior reporter Chris Sutcliffe is joined by three guests, each with years of experience and expertise around sustainable practices. Featuring Elena Linczenyiova, director for content and policy at ICF Next; Peter Bardell, co-founder of Revolt London; and Jose Sel de Felipe, executive producer at Cult LDN, this podcast seeks to answer whether the marketing industry is leading the way around sustainability.
