Listen to our Purposing podcast, and learn how to build a purpose-driven business from Given, the consultancy that’s helped some of the world's largest organisations become purposeful.

‘Purposing’ is a podcast designed for CEOs and senior leaders who want to learn what purpose means in practice and the actions needed to deliver it within their own businesses.

Our goal is to give listeners practical and useful advice about running a successful purpose-driven business based on the experiences of people who have actually done it.


S2/Ep1 – How to unlock profit with purpose – what sustainability can do for your bottom line

Global supply chains and seasonal production gives fashion a big carbon footprint. We’ve heard a lot about this in fast fashion. But in the luxury space, the story is changing. Shoppers are conscious of where products come from, and how they impact the planet and people. But how can companies harness sustainability to drive purpose and growth?

Today, I speak to a Global Director of Sustainable Business reshaping purpose in fashion. Tom Berry has been at FARFETCH for 5 years – a company that connects customers in over 190 countries with 1,400 of the world’s best-known fashion brands, boutiques and department stores. Four years into launching their sustainability strategy, Positively FARFETCH, Tom is demonstrating clear commercial results from their groundbreaking approach.

In this episode, you’ll learn how FARFETCH embraces partnerships with forward-thinking start-ups, providing tangible solutions to the industry’s problems. And how small behavioural changes among company leaders, workforces and consumers can help drive profit with purpose.
