Climate Response and Sustainability

Sustainability

Climate change and resource scarcity are pressing concerns. Businesses and governments need to react urgently to protect supply chains, address consumer perception around sustainable practices and respond to regulations. In line with the 2030 target of the Paris Agreement, we have an opportunity to push the needle significantly to limit the global temperature rise and address rapidly depleting water sources.

The big question is – how do we transform and innovate at scale?

Delivering radical transformation at scale requires bold leadership, an unprecedented shift in thinking, collaboration and investment, business model changes, innovation and technologies.

Choose your biggest challenge to get started:

Energy transition

Technology innovation

Sustainable supply chains

Sustainable products and packaging

Clean and smart mobility
