This edition features Richard Lloyd, General Manager, European Operations and Supply Chain of Accolade Wines, a international wine manufacturer and distributor dedicated to sustainability and reducing its impact on the planet. A three time recipient of Manufacturer MX Awards' Sustainable Manufacturer of the Year, the company recently announced its branded wine portfolio has been certified carbon neutral by the Carbon Trust, while remaining carbon emissions will be offset in partnership with climate and sustainability experts, ClimateCare. With dedicated focus, Richard contributes to Accolade Wines' vision to "transform the drinks industry with agile, bespoke solutions utilising our scale and sustainable footprint."

In discussion with Boyden Partner, Claire Lauder, the conversation covers game-changing shifts and opportunities arising across the sector, industry-wide transformation, sustainability, critical pivots in the current environment, consumer response, and the behavioral changes organizations and society will need to implement to have an impact.
