Has the cost of living killed the focus on sustainability?

In this first episode of a brand new season of Digital Exposed we ask the question ‘Has the Cost of living killed the focus on sustainability?’

The concerns raised by scientists just a couple of years ago are now a reality and we have all been challenged to play our part in living more sustainably. But with the cost of living crisis continuing to squeeze shoppers’ pockets and utility and business costs significantly increasing, is it financially possible for sustainability to continue to be a priority for both shoppers and brands?

Digital Exposed is joined by a special panel of guests. Nicole Corbett who is the VP of Global Thought Leadership at NIQ, James Peach who is the FMCG Regulatory Specialist at NIQ Brandbank and Alice Rackley, the CEO of Polytag.

Our expert panel share their collective experience thoughts and perspectives on global sustainability and how the cost of living landscape is being impacted.
