3 minute read
23 November 2022


Almost every designer is now focusing on sustainability as part of their brief. Design influences how we live, work and play, so all designers must ask themselves: How can you make your design more sustainable whilst still bringing joy and excitement? And, sustainable designs can have many faces - ranging from green buildings to upcycling consumer goods to electric vehicles.

In this podcast our head of Brands & Designs, John Coldham, chats to figures in the design world about how they are approaching sustainability, including:

  • Minnie Moll, Chief Executive at the Design Council. She leads the Design for Planet mission, which helps address the climate crisis;
  • Trystan Farnworth, Customer & Marketing Director, Aqua Libra Co, part of Britvic. He is an "executive change maker" driving sustainability in the F&B industry;
  • Natalie Davies, Managing Director of Ezee Group International Ltd. She designs and manufactures innovative products made from waste material; and
  • Gemma Perry, owner of the design studio House of Solus. She is a bespoke jeweller with specialism in redesign of quality pieces and upcycling jewellery.
