Welcome to the Foresight Sustainability Series podcast

Mar 26, 2020

Dan Wells, Infrastructure Partner at Foresight Group articulates what is meant by ‘sustainability’ and shares his views on some of the trends that are set to shape both businesses and, more broadly, society over the course of the coming years.

What you can expect in this episode: 

  • Language is a key barrier to the wider integration of sustainability considerations into business; we set out key industry terms
  • We explore the role sustainability has played in shaping business agendas
  • We consider the significance of ‘sustainability’ when addressing grand challenges like climate change, poverty and health equity, that threaten systems and demand cross-sector engagement

The on-going health crisis has highlighted the need to approach grand challenges holistically. To ensure long-term industry resilience, sustainability and ESG considerations will need to be mainstreamed into business strategies.
