“What do I want to see in 10 years time? A government that is properly facing into and taking action these big challenges.”

Richard is the managing director of Iceland Foods. He’s on a mission to disrupt the retail industry and tackle climate change and other environmental challenges.

A fascinating talk on some of his world-leading sustainability initiatives, including; becoming the first major retailer globally to commit to eliminating single-use plastic packaging from its own-label range; taking action against continuing destruction of tropical rainforests as the first UK major UK supermarket to announcing the removal of palm ingredients from its own label food; becoming the first UK retailer to adopt the Plastic Free Trust Mark; and being the first retailer to install trial Reverse Vending Machines for plastic bottles in stores in the UK.
