Decisive times call for decisive actions
Thomas Friedman’s column in the New York Times a few weeks back, begins “When future historians look back on 2022, they will have a lot to choose from when they ask the question: What was the most important thing that happened that year? Was it Brexit, Chexit, Ruxit or Trumpit?”
Now add to that mélange, an energy crisis, inflation rates nearing double digits, record greenhouse gas concentrations and extreme weather conditions on the rise and it all starts feeling a little bit too busy. The 27th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change – COP27 was all about delivering for the people and planet. COP27 saught renewed solidarity between countries, to deliver on the landmark Paris Agreement. Whilst there was cause for celebration with a new loss and damage fund, the consensus was that COP27 failed to deliver on ambition.
We at Impaktly believe tomorrow’s resilient companies are those delivering strong financial performance and creating positive impact for the society and environment. In other words, delivering for the people and planet. To do this, companies need bold and ambitious goals, complete re-thinking of circular business models, courage to nudge consumer behavior and carry out organizational/operational re-design to build resilient operating models. And most importantly companies need to embark on a change journey and create company-wide engagement to have everyone rally behind the cause.
