Jan and Paul are joined in the studio by Duncan Pollard, whose career has taken him from Nestle to the WWF - not the wrestling version, to Paul's disappointment - forestry to Shell, and now to the Pentland Centre.

Duncan has worked across NGOs and corporate sector on issues regarding biodiversity and sustainability, and explains the importance of companies understanding their impact on the climate and the biosphere, and how work at the Pentland Centre is looking at what good reporting on that impact would look like, and whether companies understand that.
