Welcome to our 2021 Actions for Business, where we identify the forthcoming challenges and actions for businesses that seek to accelerate change towards a future where our society and planet can thrive. This was always going to be a decisive decade, which our current global fragile and fraught status makes only more profound.
If taking wider responsibility is the uniting thread for our 2021 Actions for Business, being held to account is our watch-out for 2021, as the lens of ESG takes centre stage for business strategy and conduct.
Now is the time for action. As Amanda Gorman’s poem, ‘The Hill We Climb’ urges, history has its eyes on us. Let business be brave enough to see it, and brave enough to be it.
