the sustainability revolution.

The notion of ‘sustainability’ has most commonly been associated with climate change, but this current revolution goes way beyond that single, albeit very important, issue. Our current economic, social and governance models have to change in the face of a growing and ageing global population, scarcity of natural resources, digitisation and rising inequality. We must therefore fundamentally rethink established norms in areas including transport, food systems, healthcare, education, data management and infrastructure.

No country, sector, company, or asset class will go untouched.

For some time, our operating model has been under pressure from some large-scale, global challenges, including:

 Changes in our physical environment caused by climate change;

 Shifting demographics as our population expands, ages and becomes more mobile;

 The depletion of natural resources in the face of a growing population;

 Increasing digitalisation and connectivity disrupting traditional governance, social and consumption models;

 Rising inequality, in all its forms, which is already undermining our post-World War II geopolitical stability

Now, more than ever, we must adapt to meet these challenges.
