The world turns to climate action. What is your role?
As nations and governments set a path for the post-pandemic economic recovery, environmental and wider ESG related concerns are becoming increasingly high in the agenda of both developed and emerging markets.
Businesses are increasingly expected to develop their own path towards carbon neutrality. That, of course, has a major impact on people, processes, and profitability. There are, however, two ways executives can look at this: they can see it as a challenge that needs to be navigated, or they can embrace it as an opportunity that can be seized.
This year, Earth Day becomes even more relevant as 40 world leaders come together to underscore the urgency and benefits of strong climate action during the US-led Leaders Summit on Climate.
To mark the date, we selected some of our most insightful content as well as a compilation of feature reports from the Financial Times and reflections from IE Business School professors so you can be better prepared to have conversations about the role your business can take in shaping a more sustainable planet.
At Headspring, we believe every business have the potential to make the world a better place. Working with and through people, we can empower leaders to make responsible decisions, and achieve better outcomes for ours as well as future generations.
