Mike Barry will share his broad experience in CSR and sustainable business at this spotlight talk during the Green Recovery Festival. Mike will explain why the sustainable revolution matters and how sustainability can be successfully integrated into business strategy.

Until 2019 Mike was Head of Sustainable Business at Marks and Spencer, where he helped to develop, launch and implement its ground-breaking Plan A programme. In ten years, Plan A delivered £750m of net business benefit and over the years won 230 awards. The business achieved zero-waste-to-landfill status, moved to 100% renewable electricity and achieved carbon neutrality across its global estate of stores, offices and warehouses. Upon leaving M&S he formed mikebarryeco ltd in order to support organisations across society and the economy to deliver sustainable change.
