As Covid-19 continues to impact on our lives and has made our normal practice of visiting companies impossible at the moment we decided to try a different approach. Haygrove Ltd provided a virtual tour via Zoom of their Haygrove fruit farm near Ledbury focusing on their journey to becoming carbon neutral and more sustainable generally.

Key theme: What faster way to change the world than if all business chose to, or had to, publish their results on a triple bottom line? Our journey to it.
