In light of COP26 being held in Glasgow between 31 October and 12 November 2021, I wanted to speak to someone who was leading the way here in the UK to tackle some of the biggest climate change emergencies. Hugo Tagholm is the Chief Executive for Surfers Against Sewage (SAS). SAS is one of the UK’s leading ocean conservation and campaigning charities that inspires, unites and empowers communities to take action to protect oceans, beaches, waves and wildlife.
The charity fights against sewage and plastic pollution and is working towards improving water quality and ocean recovery. Hugo is very purpose-driven and has been fighting for these causes since the early ‘90s.
I caught up with Hugo to talk purpose, climate change and how businesses can actively make changes to support the cause and decrease their harmful impact on the planet.
