For the latest in consumer and industry news, top trends and market perspectives, stay tuned to Mintel News featuring commentary from Mintel's team of global category analysts.

Host Samantha Dover is joined by packaging expert, David Luttenberger, and author of the Sustainability Barometer, Richard Cope, to discuss the role of sustainability in business. Brands are slowly transitioning from vague sustainability targets to environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) frameworks and, eventually, to commitments to meeting the 17 United Nations Sustainability Goals. The experts discuss the different sustainability frameworks businesses can utilise, why an investment in sustainability offers brands an insurance policy on future viability and how brands should effectively communicate sustainability missions to consumers. Listen to find out why now, arguably more than ever, is the best time to invest in sustainability products, policies, campaigns and services.
