Climate change & sustainability will be a key driver of future economic development, and will have lasting impact on business and communities. Given the significant shift in public attitude with respect to climate change, many businesses have moved from viewing sustainability as a cost center to a revenue generator. Moving forward, sustainable initiatives will be an integral component of any successful business strategy.
This podcast focuses on the impact the green agenda has on business and the global economy, the role of government in furthering that agenda, as well as the influence of large developing economies, such as China, on a sustainable economic environment. The podcast also includes feedback from a CEO roundtable held at the Boao Forum for Asia at the beginning of April, which focused on strategies for building business in a green growth world.
