Description

Recorded live at the Confederation of British Industry’s annual conference in London, Steven Dring, Co-Founder and CEO of Growing Underground speaks to our Head of Citizenship about how they have reinvented the idea of sustainable farming - Growing Underground is a business taking on the challenge of a growing population with a finite amount of agricultural land.

They are a sustainable salad business utilising unloved underground space, turning it into a farm and producing very short supply chains, all 33m below the streets of Clapham.

They also discuss the role that business plays in driving sustainability, from impact investing to social enterprises.
