The Paris Agreement — It's Down to Business

April 15, 2016 | Alice Garton

The Paris Agreement signals the end of the fossil fuel era, shifting the entire world economy — with huge implications for business. Governments in 195 countries committed to climate goals, but the scale of the transition required is such that governments can’t do it alone. We need business to fully commit, too. And the mechanism for this commitment can be found in business by-laws and constitution statements.

How Collaboration Advances Your Sustainability Efforts

February 16, 2015 | Knut Haanaes (BCG) and David Kiron (MIT Sloan Management Review)

In a webinar recorded in January 2015, the speakers present findings from the recent global study they co-authored, “Joining Forces: Collaboration and Leadership for Sustainability.” The study, by MIT Sloan Management Review, The Boston Consulting Group and the United Nations Global Compact, shows that a growing number of companies are turning to collaborations — with suppliers, NGOs, industry alliances, governments and even competitors — to become more sustainable. The research found that companies are realizing that they can’t make the necessary impact acting alone.
