A Cornish resin business has slammed other businesses who don't have the climate and sustainability at the forefront of their operations.

Oltco, a Cornwall-based resin solutions provider, made the comments in response to the COP26 climate conference and the need for sustainable business practices.

One of Oltco's founders, Johnny Pearce, said: "I find it absolutely staggering that businesses do not have sustainability at the forefront of their KPIs.

"The current climate threat is not going to go away on its own.

"I have met some incredible entrepreneurs who are filled with ideas, passion and hunger for implementation which are skill sets the world needs right now.

"It is time that we come together, bringing our unique skill sets to help make an impactful difference.

"If sustainability is not on your business agenda then you are potentially setting yourself up for failure and future generations will not accept your ethos.

"Our ethos is ‘to feel good about the work that we do and decisions that we make’ and this covers every aspect of our business.

"We should be leading the way when it comes to taking action against climate change.

"Hopefully off the back of COP26, our world leaders can take a really strong stance on fighting climate change and I hope this will spur on other people and businesses to consider their focus moving forward.

"I truly believe the mind-set of an entrepreneur will massively help combat the global issue we are currently facing."
