Breitling gathered members of its Explorer Squad to London last night for an evening examining humankind’s impact on the environment.

David de Rothschild and Ben Fogle held a question and answer session at the watchmaker’s Bond Street on topics ranging from global warming to plastic pollution to an audience of  explorers and environmentally conscious taste-makers including Oliver Cheshire, Dougie Poynter, Maddy Elmer, Polly Morgan, Laura Whitmore, Karina Deyko Breitling UK Surfers Squad: Lucy Campbell, Alan Stokes, Alex Libby ; Johanna Konta, The Turner Twins, George Bullard, Alexandra Dudley,  Bee Beardsworth, Tommy Brady, Jeremy King, George Lamb, Neil Laughton, Adam Henson, Anthony de Rothschild, Andy Torbet, Neel Wanders, Brett & Scott Staniland, Josh Cuthbert, Johnny Ward, Captain Q Smith.

Breitling also used the event to launch its Superocean Heritage II Ocean Conservancy, a limited edition timepiece with a strap crafted from Econyl yarn that is made largely from fishing nets recovered from the sea.
