The October Green Monday began by asking two experts with opposing views - a Malthusian verses a Cornucopian – to review Jeremy Grantham's theory that we are entering an era of rising resource prices. With 29% of the profit warnings this year being linked to rising resource prices, it’s a core business issue. The debate then moved on to capture the views of an investor and a practitioner in a FTSE100 who is engaged in a resource efficiency strategy. It was one of most interesting Green Mondays, thanks to the diversity of speakers and the thought they put into their messages.
Some interesting angles for us were;
Jim Woods on "Jeremy Grantham in 6 minutes"
Timothy Lenton, Professor of Earth System Science, University of Exeter
Brendan O'Neill, Editor, Spiked
Simon Ellis, Managing Director, Legal and General
Andy Wales Group Head of Sustainable Business, SAB Miller
