Meant to be in Seoul today for the Business for Environment (B4E) summit, but rendered impossible by Icelandic ash cloud. Had been meant to take part in various plenary, breakfast and lunch sessions, so we had offered either to do a live link (which would have had me in a studio in the early hours) or a video. Dow Chemical opted for a video for their lunch session, so that has been a key part of today’s story, with Sam woken at 05.00 this morning by a call from Seoul.
Gaia then helped us track down a video company in Soho, whence Sam and I made our way around 14.00. Nice walk in glorious sun – and they made it very easy. Then a walk back, via various artist’s materials, magazine and material shops, looking for a birthday card and a dress for an Indian wedding. In one shop, where they were playing Madonna’s Material Girl, I spotted some bolts of rather garish tiger striped material which, at least for me, chimed with the theme of the report I am working with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) team to finish off and send to the printers.
