What we talk about when we talk about sustainability

Adopting a sustainable mindset is becoming ever more important for both businesses and consumers, so it’s no surprise that a lot of sustainability jargon is popping up online, in publications and in conversation more generally. But many of these terms can be a little difficult to understand – and they may even be misused by those who want to obscure what’s really going on in terms of their sustainability performance.

Our Chief Content Officer, Nick Jardine created a handy glossary that debunks what they really mean, so you can drop them into conversation without any fear of messing up for The Know Media.
