Another year, and yet more record breaking climate events. So, what’s next for the global sustainability agenda?
Will the upcoming COP28 summit, controversially hosted by the CEO of Adnoc, mark a significant step towards limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees, or will it be an exercise in greenwashing, as some critics suggest?
Do ESG ratings, initially hailed as an important means for incorporating ethical and sustainability considerations into corporate decision-making, really reflect organisations’ environmental impact? Or are they just a “sham”?
Businesses need to consider how they can contribute to an economy that values environmental and human thriving as much as dollars and cents. They need to understand that the flourishing of their organisation is inextricably linked to the flourishing of the planet – they are aligned, not in opposition to one another.
This will require new forms of leadership, new cultures of innovation and a new strategic mindset.
