Can you reverse climate change and promote social justice while generating a profit? Richard Walker shows you how it's both possible and valuable to "do it right".
Walker runs a £3bn business that is affecting real change in the most unlikely but critical sector: the supermarket. From restricting single-use plastic to eradicating palm oil from products, his quest is to find purpose with profit for his business. In this intimate, challenging, and encouraging audiobook, he explains how you too can make genuine progress on sustainable initiatives while being realistic about profit margins, and obligations to customers and employees.
The Green Grocer offers clear-sighted experience and inspiration for any business, whether a large corporation, a kitchen-table start-up, or a sole trader, to make a difference.
