The Regeneration Roadmap Launches Changing Tack


Thursday 13th June saw hundreds of people tune in to a public webcast of the launch of Changing Tack, the outcome of months of global engagement on the sustainability agenda. Jo Confino of Guardian Sustainable Business moderated the discussion with senior executives from BMW, Cisco and SC Johnson.

The report forms the final output of The Regeneration Roadmap, an 18-month initiative designed to engage the private sector in advancing sustainable development by improving strategy, increasing credibility and delivering results at greater speed and scale.

On the website now is the full recording of the webcast plus a series of blogs from the project team who have been giving their perspectives and opinion on the outcomes of the report.

SustainAbility and UNEP Release GEO-5 for Business


Today sees the launch of the most recent collaboration between UNEP and SustainAbility - GEO-5 for Business: Impacts of a Changing Environment on the Corporate Sector.

Using GEO-5 (a 500+ page compilation of environmental data, policy options and scenarios) as its foundation, GEO-5 for Business serves as a primer written specifically for business leaders. While much analysis has been conducted on the impacts of business on the environment, this report looks in the other direction – at the impacts of environmental trends on business.

GEO-5 for Business provides a clear picture of trends and impacts that business leaders across 10 key sectors should focus on, both to mitigate risk and explore new opportunities.
