A Disruptive New Model for Corporate Sustainability and ESG | Georgia Elliott-Smith | TEDxUCL
Georgia challenges the status quo of corporate philosophy, urging businesses to understand profit in the wider context of sustainability. An environmental engineer and Chartered Environmentalist, Georgia started her career as one of UK construction’s first Environment Managers. Following an Antarctic expedition, she became UN Special Junior Envoy for Youth & the Environment, speaking to young people around the world on environmental issues.
As the current Managing Director of sustainability consultancy Element Four, Georgia works with organisations such as the Bank of England, Nike and Deloitte to deliver more sustainable projects and business practices. A critic of traditional approaches, Georgia promotes “disruptive sustainability” – a combination of best practice and activism that generates purpose and drives actions necessary to achieve meaningful change in industry. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
