The Great Business Debate is about encouraging a public conversation about the role and contribution of the business community.
As a planet, we are facing some big environmental challenges, like climate change and resource scarcity, and business must be on board to make a real difference. Companies of all shapes and sizes are reducing their environmental footprints but more needs to be done to help secure the future for all of us, business included.
Over the coming weeks, we will showcase what businesses in the UK are doing to tackle these environmental challenges and to build and maintain trust in what it does.
To get you thinking about the debate, here are some introductory materials:

- Does business growth come at the expense of the environment? Asks Phil Bicknell, NFU
So what do you think? Can businesses be successful and at the same time, minimise their impact on the environment? Can will customers benefit from the investment that businesses make to be more sustainable and low-carbon?
