WATCH: The Net Zero Festival 2023 hears from Bupa's Julia Giannini, Neil Jones at Walgreens Boots Alliance, and Forum for the Future's international MD Hannah Pathak on the need for interlinked corporate action on climate, nature and public health
The climate crisis is also a public health crisis, with potentially devastating impacts on human health, as air pollution, deforestation, and rising temperatures exacerbate both non-communicable and infectious diseases.
At the recent Net Zero Festival 2023, BusinessGreen's editor in chief James Murray sat down with three leading business voices for a discussion exploring the urgent need for interlinked action on climate, nature and health:
- Neil Jones, international head of ESG at Walgreens Boots Alliance
- Julia Giannini, head of environment and climate action at Bupa
- Hannah Pathak, international managing director at Forum for the Future
Their conversation can be watched back in full in the video below.
