Deborah Leipziger starts us off with a conversation about Corporate Social Responsibility and Social Innovation in the sustainability space. We discuss some of the efforts companies are making to become more “sustainable”, the reality of what sustainable actually is in reference, and some of the circumstances that leads us to be having this discussion in the first place. You can learn more about Deborah, and her new book The Corporate Responsibility Code Book here:

In the second half, Rachel Kramer from WWF joins us to talk about illicit wildlife and endangered species trade. We discuss the extent of the illicit wildlife trade, the successes and limitations of efforts by NGO’s to deal with the problem and the very real impact on the rest of the planet just in case you don’t share the idea that we shouldn’t be wiping out species in general in the first place.
