He then made it his mission to start a business that would have a positive net impact. Delphis Eco, the UK’s leading manufacturer of green cleaning products, was born. Delphis Eco was the first company to create 100% single-use plastic and Mr. Jankovich said of his company: “We’re pretty much TOC when it comes to being eco-friendly and green. “Both from a point of view of pride and from a point of view of social value. “

Mr Jankovich told Express.co.uk his forecast for the future as the climate crisis grips the planet.

He said: “My doomsday scenario is that London does not exist.

“London has been there for 2000 years and in the next 30 to 50 years London will no longer exist because it is underwater.

“And I think it’s 100 percent certainty. I don’t think the government is able to do anything, they won’t be able to change the Thames Barrier in time.

“You had Formula E there.

“You had JCB showing that they were going to come up with a hydrogen scoop. It has nothing to do with the government.

“So I feel like it was a huge success because it galvanized and brought together and people from all walks of life, all ages were there every day, beating their drums and saying: We have to resolve this. problem.”

Mr. Jankovich added: “Innovation is moving faster than governments can keep up.

“So I was extremely positive in revealing who really has the power now and the power is with Greta, it’s with the grandmother who is worried about her grandchildren.

“It’s with the businesses that go if we don’t do this, the customers won’t buy my business and if they don’t buy my business, I’m going to lose my job. “

“We have no choice, we are legally obliged to be net-zero by 2050.”

Mr. Jankovich wrote a book called Collaborate to Zero which included interviews with forward-thinking entrepreneurs and leaders, pooling their ideas to help drive change.

He said he had encountered many obstacles as an eco-entrepreneur and wanted to share with the next generation of creative thinkers.

He said: “We’re going to make this trip, and some will be tough and some will be great.

“But we are all on this journey together and we can’t leave anyone behind.

“It’s not between them and us.

“The story is that we are going on this trip. We have to get there. We have no choice.

“But the way we’re going to do it is, we’re going to see the most incredible kaleidoscope of innovation to come. We’re going to see some really cool things happen. And old school brands that don’t innovate are dead.

“I had so many hard knocks during my trip. We don’t have time for other people to spend 10 years struggling to invent this stuff. “
