“Smart companies now treat sustainability as innovation’s new frontier”
~Harvard Business Review
A glimpse of the world in an increasingly uncertain and vulnerable future
There is a realization amongst many companies that to ensure a sustainable business into the 21st century requires a shift from business as usual to innovative, out-of-the-box thinking for a Thrivable Future.
Business today therefore needs to transition from creating shareholder value in the short term, to creating and preserving inclusive wealth for all stakeholders in the medium to long term. Sustainability is proving to be much more than a SHEC or/ Level 4 GRI reporting compliance; it is a essential “Future License to Operate”.
According to The “Kondratiev Cycles” tracking long term technology and growth cycles since 1785, we are entering the 6th disruptive wave of Innovation “a Sustainability Revolution”, which includes Radical resource productivity, Whole system design, Biomimicry, Green Chemistry, Industrial ecology, Renewable energy and Green Nanotechnology.
