The Edit: Shared Goals

The best way for leaders to foster sustainable businesses, the pros and cons of ambition and more in this week’s Edit.
13th Aug 2021

With the IPCC’s sixth climate report released earlier this week and the Delta variant of Covid-19 still spreading, the concept of a common cause that is shared across the world has perhaps never been so explicit. The global necessity to continue vaccination efforts and to take evasive climate action is clear. 

How big of a role should businesses play in the pursuit of these global needs? How can companies direct their power and purpose towards shared goals that benefit everyone?

This is our edit of the global conversation on purpose. 

  • What the IPCC’s Climate Report means for humanity: nothing has changed, but perspective has shifted – The Economist
  • How ambitious should we all be, and when does it become destructive? – The Financial Times
  • Creativity breeds change: here are some of the most creative people working across all sectors in business – Fast Company
  • The fictitious nature of carbon-neutral fossil fuels: a contradictory claim that is no longer defensible – Bloomberg
  • The race to provide electric charging points in on – Fortune
  • What will be the tipping point of going from avoidance to prioritisation of the climate crisis? – The Atlantic
  • How leaders can execute successful sustainability policies – McKinsey 
  • Remote work is becoming a status symbol. How can companies foster a workplace that remains equal after the pandemic? – Time 

“It’s when crisis hits – when bombs fall or the floodwater rises – that we humans become our best selves.”
