Sustainability is at a critical inflection point. It’s no longer just a driver for corporate reputation – it’s the next big driver for growth. With sustainability issues hitting the headlines in a way we’ve never seen before, the pressure is on for companies to act to ensure this opportunity doesn't turn into risk.

With most targets and strategies expiring in 2020, the time to take a step back and shape the next era of sustainability is here. We need to leverage everything we’ve learnt about sustainability – the good, the bad and the ugly – and unlock its full potential.

The time to act is now. Are you ready?
