Horticulture Week Podcast: landscaping a path to net zero with Nurture Group’s Gordon Whyte

On its way to net zero, Nurture Group’s head of ESG  (Environmental, Social, and Governance) Criteria – Gordon Whyte speaks about the company's journey on this week’s podcast.

Speaking about how Nurture’s grounds maintenance teams balance the needs of the clients against the needs of the planet, Whyte explains that though they are governed by their customers' needs, they need to sell a greener service, while showcasing the social values that Nurture is building within the business.

Whyte also delves into the steps the business took to become carbon neutral, and how it’s taking that one step further on its journey to net zero. These changes are not exclusive to larger landscape companies, either, as Whyte explains the steps smaller businesses can make too.

Known for its acquisitions, Whyte also touches upon the reasoning behind some of Nurture's more recent ones and how they fit into the fabric of the company.
