This involves working with global businesses such as HSBC and Walgreens Boots Alliance, as well as a wide range of other non-profit, membership and philanthropic organisations. This work takes the form of both one to one partnerships and multi-stakeholder collaborations, all designed to address complex challenges in systems as diverse as from food to apparel.
Sally has recently contributed to Forum’s ‘Business Transformation Compass’ – a guide to just and regenerative business, as well as co-authored ‘Driving Co-Benefits for Climate and Health’, private sector guidance for developing integrated climate and health strategies.

Henry has worked in sustainability for over a decade and has a deep-rooted passion for the environment sparked by his childhood growing up on an organic farm in Cumbria.
Over his career Henry has worked for a range of organisations including environmental start-ups, charities, regional government and environmental consultancy. After advising Nando’s as a consultant Henry went on to join the restaurant group as their Head of Sustainability. Over his 5 years at Nando’s Henry and the team reduced the carbon footprint of their average meal by 40%, reduced direct emissions by 98% and donated over 2.5 million meals through their industry leading food donation programme. In 2020 Nando’s became the first restaurant group in the world with an approved Science Based Target and commitment to better chicken welfare.
