The worlds we collectively inhabit — corporate sustainability, sustainable finance, the circular economy, climate tech — are all reaching inflection points, growing and changing faster than many could have imagined. Along the way, they’re roiling industries, companies, jobs and career paths — mostly for the better but also in a be-careful-what-you-wish-for kind of way. The 15th annual “State of Green Business” report by GreenBiz.Com comes at an exciting and perilous time for companies, their stakeholders and the world in general. Business — and, indeed, humankind — is undergoing an epochal transition.
Nearly everything must be reinvented if we are to equitably prosper into the future. If any institution on the planet has the resources and wherewithal to provide the human and financial firepower to get it done, it’s business.
The good news is that companies are making great progress, with lots more on the way. But will it be too little, too late?
