Ian Ellison  and Paul Cassell (ESD Graduate 10-11) of Jaguar Landrover,  ran a workshop which they crafted especially for the ESD MPhil programme  on 6th June 2017 bringing together a number of sustainability tools and lenses to examine a real case. The session focused on the real world problem of growing a premium automotive business in an increasingly environmentally constrained world. The students  explored the role of LCA, Natural Capital, resource efficiency, circular economy and the shared economy.

Many thanks to Ian and Paul for organising the session.
