Lloyds Bank Joins Forces with edie for Sustainability Uncovered Podcast

Lloyds Bank has partnered with edie, a leading sustainability media brand, to host the Sustainability Uncovered podcast, a platform dedicated to exploring the latest trends and innovations in sustainability. The podcast's latest episode, Episode 18, delves into the critical topic of net-zero emissions, featuring expert guests from the finance, built environment, and agriculture sectors.

Why this matters: The banking sector's role in addressing climate change is crucial, as it can significantly influence the transition to a low-carbon economy. By promoting sustainability and reducing emissions, initiatives like the Sustainability Uncovered podcast can have a ripple effect, inspiring other industries to take action and contributing to a more environmentally conscious future.

The episode, released ahead of edie's Scope 3 Emissions Workshops in London on June 14, 2024, showcases Lloyds Bank's commitment to supporting businesses in their transition to a more sustainable future. The workshops aim to bring together industry leaders to discuss and address the challenges of scope 3 emissions, which are indirect emissions that occur in a company's value chain.

Episode 18 features exclusive interviews with Olivia Pfeiffer, Head of Finance, Sustainability Reporting, and Neil Oliver, Director of Sustainability Portfolio Analytics at Lloyds Banking Group. They discuss measuring and reducing financed emissions, a crucial aspect of the banking sector's role in combating climate change. Tor Burrows, Group Sustainability Director at Grosvenor, shares insights on measuring embodied carbon from buildings and engaging with built environment suppliers on emissions data. Andrew Lloyd, Chief Executive of Intelligent Growth Solutions, explores the potential of vertical farming as a solution to reduce emissions in the agriculture sector.

The Sustainability Uncovered podcast is available on various platforms, including iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and SoundCloud. It features live-in-the-studio guests, leader interviews, need-to-know round-ups, listener quizzes, and more, all wrapped up into monthly episodes.

Lloyds Bank's partnership with edie demonstrates the banking sector's growing recognition of its role in addressing climate change and supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy. By collaborating with a leading sustainability media brand, Lloyds Bank aims to raise awareness, share knowledge, and inspire action among businesses and stakeholders.

As businesses face increasing pressure to reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to global net-zero targets, initiatives like the Sustainability Uncovered podcast and the Scope 3 Emissions Workshops provide valuable insights and resources to support their sustainability journey. Lloyds Bank's involvement in these initiatives highlights the importance of collaboration between the financial sector and sustainability experts in driving meaningful change.
