Fuelled by the climate crisis, the world – and organisations in every sector across it – face a perilous future. Without further policies to combat climate change, the OECD projects that GHG emissions will grow by about 52% by 2050. 770 million people worldwide currently lack electricity access. And the UN predicts that 5 billion people will be affected by water shortages by 2050.

Combine these alarming statistics with the drive to net zero, and it is abundantly clear that organisations everywhere need to embrace more sustainable ways of working – and fast. But how can you make the transition effectively – and in a way that protects your profits while delivering a competitive advantage?
