The events of last year put increased levels of pressure on businesses to rethink their future agendas. Not only did COVID-19 rapidly alter our ways of living and working overnight, but a continued increase in extreme climate events have resulted in consumers becoming increasingly aware of their social and environmental impact. As a result, incorporating sustainability methods, from a business perspective, has become just as crucial as successful digital transformation. Moving forward, the number of companies that have a stronger focus on performing ‘responsible business’ will significantly impact the resilience, survival and development of the sectors within which they operate.
This discussion, hosted by the FT in partnership with Accenture, will assess the practicalities of moving sustainability to the top of core business decision-making, and discuss how this can help add value to almost all sectors of the economy.
Key Talking Points:
Taking stock: Will increased environmental awareness from the pandemic have a lasting effect on how companies operate their business?
To what extent are multinational companies putting ‘responsible business’ at the heart of their operations? Are they using the right tools and technologies to do so?
By becoming a more sustainable business how can you truly add value to a sector and help drive lasting positive change and innovation?
Industry spotlight: how do we better understand the consumer trends behind renewable energy and electric vehicle use to successfully reinvent their respective energy and mobility sectors?
What are the key factors that business leaders need to consider when using new approaches, such as sustainable cloud technology, to reinvent their business?
