Keynote speaker:
Andrew Isaac Thornton

Divert NS was excited to welcome Andrew Thornton as the 2019 Mobius Awards keynote speaker.

Andrew Isaac Thornton is an entrepreneur, the owner of Thornton’s Budgens (a supermarket in North London, UK) and the founder of Heart in Business Limited.

His life purpose is to put the Heart back into Business and encourage the shift from an obsession with profit, towards a business world where people and the planet are put first. He has applied these principles to Thornton’s Budgens, which has become one of the first supermarkets in the world to introduce completely plastic-free zones throughout the store.

In just 10 weeks, the supermarket eliminated the use of plastic packaging for nearly 2,000 products and the goal is to be virtually plastic free in three years. The store has already achieved its target of sending zero food waste to landfill.
