The Economics of Sustainability, 17 January 7:30am
Once seen as a cost center, organizations are now seeing sustainability as an integral part of their corporate strategy. While ESG was used as a risk framework for shareholders, companies who do not build it into their operating model are at risk of losing clients, suppliers, and employees. As organizations become more accountable to their Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions, profits & purpose will go hand in hand.
