The global economy is being transformed in profound ways, creating radical new sustainability challenges and opportunities. How these play out, and how we respond to them, is uncertain. True sustainability is about being fit for the future and to do so requires not just more of the same, but being able to think differently. We need to explore various possible futures and use our imaginations to manifest the world we want to live in. As Albert Einstein said, “We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.”
BSR is a global nonprofit organization that works with its network of more than 250 member companies and other partners to build a just and sustainable world. From its offices in Asia, Europe, and North America, BSR develops sustainable business strategies and solutions through consulting, research, and cross-sector collaboration.
