reviewing common sense green contributions from 2010s

april 2016 letter to the economist
* You rightly point out that there remains a substantial amount of work to do to make sustainability the new business norm. Disruptive innovations and standard business concerns to control risk and cost are breaking new ground and transforming business models. They are challenging the status quo of established industries—from fossil fuels to fashion. Given growing environmental and security threats, the private sector needs to accelerate inclusive growth and drive sustainability at far greater speed and scale. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a framework for business to do just that.

A major challenge is the trust deficit in society with regard to business, especially large multinationals and financial institutions. Recent political developments in Europe and America are widely seen as rebukes to economic elites and dramatic evidence of the dire lack of trust. The SDGs, therefore, have a second purpose: to serve as a roadmap for business to create the social license it needs to operate and thrive.

By pursuing the SDGs through sustainable and inclusive new business models, the private sector can rebuild bridges. The result could be that sustainability loses its “faddish” reputation entirely, and instead, becomes an enduring business must-have.

Following the United Nations Climate Change Summit on 23rd September 2019, convened by UN Secretary General António Guterres, the Global Commission on Adaptation has begun its Year of Action. Our Year of Action will:
  • Advance recommendations from Flagship Report and Action Tracks
  • Help accelerate adaptation around the world
  • Improve human well-being and result in more sustainable economic development and security
The findings will be presented in October 2020 at the Climate Action Summit hosted by the Netherlands.

The Global Commission on Adaptation is led by 8th Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-Moon and co-chaired by Bill Gates and Kristalina Georgieva. Together they have an audacious mission: to tip the balance in favor of continued growth and more widely shared prosperity, even in a rapidly warming world.

Our Commissioners are known for their track record of global leadership on major issues, and their ability to advance the Commission’s work. They will oversee the development of a flagship report, to be released in September 2019 ahead of the United Nations Secretary General’s Climate Summit.

The leaders of our convening countries recognize that adaptation is a smart investment that will pay high returns. They also know that failures of adaptation in some countries will have negative spill-over effects on others. They are therefore committed to work together to advance the work of the Commission and catalyze a global adaptation movement.
