Hello, we’re so glad you are here, it is important to know who’s writing what you are reading.
The Sustainable Business Guide is designed to be a source of practical, reliable information for business leaders.   We believe that business can, and must, be a force for good.  We are working for a just transition to lower carbon economy where businesses can regenerate the environments they operate in and the societies they serve.
We have a particular focus on small to medium size enterprises (SMEs) as they form a large part of the economy and are often find it hardest to start on their sustainability journey.
All the content on this site is authored by trained sustainability specialists, many of whom are graduates from the University of Cambridge’s Institute of Sustainable Business (CISL) and some run their own businesses or work for some of the biggest brands in the world.  They are practising experts in their fields.  The editorial content is un-biased and does not favour any commercial partner.  Each article is peer reviewed before publishing.
