Something we’ve watched…

How, in times of crisis, we can create systems change together

It’s never been clearer that our global systems are in need of repair. In this warmhearted TEDx talk from “ecosystem weaver” Adrian Röbke, he explains how—by connecting stakeholders and actors to each other at all levels of a system—we can build a world where both people and planet can thrive together.

But this article by Andrew Winston heads off the naysayers to demonstrate—in a refreshingly level-headed and non-jingoistic take—that sustainability in business is in fantastic shape and is, in fact, accelerating.

This has been a growing anecdotal trend over the last couple of years, but emerging US consumer research from McKinsey and NielsenIQ have now found a “clear and material link” between ESG and consumer spending, with product sales boasting ESG-related claims outperforming their peers by 1.7 percentage points over the last 5 years.
