About CWP 

What? 

CWP is dedicated to uncovering, creating and sharing stories that truly matter, stories that inspire action, cultivate hope, and pave the way for a future where every individual and organisation recognises their potential to contribute to a better society and a healthier planet. 

How?  

Our stories focus on individuals and organisations making a positive impact and that have real-world solutions. We partner with professional member associations and trade bodies to produce and promote sector-focused ‘digital series’ for their industries. These series include multi-platform, ‘narrowcast’ content; including documentaries, short films, interviews, podcasts and written material.  

Why?  

Our vision is a world where everyone feels empowered to play their part in creating a better tomorrow. 

The digital series we create are aimed at supporting professionals to drive progress within their sectors towards a positive future. Our innovative, purpose-driven content is case study and character-led; highlighting the issues, the solutions and the required innovations to drive a more sustainable future, supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We want to show what is possible, not impossible. 

Who?  

Our digital series feature people and organisations at the forefront of pushing their industries towards a sustainable future, whether that be through exciting technological innovation or rethinking the way business is done. These pioneering stories are aimed at stakeholders across government, academia, the private sector, non-profits, the next generation, and the general public.  

Example content  

‘Leading the Way to a World Beyond Waste’ is a digital series that CWP produced in collaboration with CIWM (the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management) and which launched in September 2023. It explores the essential role of the resources and waste management sector in advancing circularity and protecting the world’s environment and resources for future generations.
