On Friday 24 March, The Beautiful Truth and Arçelik’s CEO Hakan Bulgurlu joined together for a live webinar and film screening, in support of the Turkey earthquake relief efforts.

We also screened our short film ‘Peak: Lessons from Chomolungma’, which tells the gripping story of Bulgurlu’s pursuit of Everest in the name of climate change.

This was followed by a discussion hosted by our co-founder Adam Penny, and explored the importance of the business leader in embedding a meaningful purpose company-wide, including:

  • The role that business plays in tackling climate change
  • His journey to purposeful realisation, and the impact this had on Arçelik’s business
  • The essential role of the business leader in embedding sustainability efforts
