Ian Olson, the senior director of global sustainability at McDonald’s, joins Will and Tom this week to talk about his background in economics and as the global manager of supply chain sustainability at the Ford Motor Company, the lessons learned and what he brought to the fast-food giant, including learning to accept failure.
Plus, Ian talks about a new partnership with WaterStart’s global pilot program to play a role in how emerging water solutions are identified, evaluated and deployed. Also, Ian, Will and Tom talk about the power of accessible brands, with McDonald’s serving 69 million people per day to provide “aha” moments, to democratise awareness on sustainability and water quality issues.
Plus much, much more!
We hope you enjoy the episode!
