The world is changing rapidly. Climate change which requires greater resilience and low-carbon businesses, the future of work as driven by automation, AI and robots, and the subsequent ethics and human rights questions will have significant implications for business strategy and governance. The solution is not simply to accelerate the integration of sustainability into company strategy. It’s time to adopt a new way of designing business strategy and creating value - with sustainability as a crucial element of its foundation that helps companies navigate the business transformation necessitated by a rapidly changing operating environment. Creating a truly resilient business strategy means understanding the sustainability issues that have converged with the business agenda but also retaining the agility to respond to different future scenarios. Join us to explore the building blocks of 21st-century strategy by learning from companies leading on business transformation.
