Quotes

David Nussbaum, Chief Executive, WWF-UK, said: "in terms of its ambition, scale and commitment at the highest levels of the company, sabmiller's 'prosper' plan represents a vision that recognises the centrality of sustainability to delivering prosperity - for businesses, as well as for people and nature."
"The good news," said Nussbaum, "is that broadly what's good news for humans is good for the planet. but we have to think about how we can influence the system to change it so that it produces the food we all need but at a price that isn't damaging to the environment, and that means working with both companies and governments. it's tough, but we have to find a way of confronting this."
