Stelios Haji-Ioannou, CEO of easyGroup – interview

Stelios Haji-Ioannou, the CEO of the easyGroup, speaks about business’s role in transitioning to a low carbon lifestyle at Policy Network’s conference on the Politics of Climate Change on June 5th 2009 at the LSE. He argues that business must be pro-active in running their business in a sustainable way, but people must also make choices, including consuming goods which use less resources and are more environmentally friendly. Stelios also argues that government’s tax the aircraft for take-off because it is the engine, not the passenger, that causes the pollution, encouraging airlines to scrap older aircraft.
