Redefining Sustainable Business

Redefining Sustainable Business

It is clear that the time is here for a new approach to sustainable business. Business as usual won’t get the job done—and sustainability as usual won’t suffice. If we are to avoid catastrophic climate change, build truly fair and inclusive economic growth, and navigate a radically reshaped world, it is time for change. With these changes in mind, we believe it is time for a new agenda, new approach, and new advocacy. In other words, it is time for business and other partners to embrace new issues, new ways of pursuing sustainability, and a new—and more assertive—voice.
