Amid widespread dysfunction – a pandemic, a previously unthinkable war, unprecedented weather events, snarled supply chains, rampant labor shortages – it’s easy to sense the old world fading away, never to return. Less obvious, but as certain, is the dawning of a new era.

What is defining the new reality? It will be defined by a volatile planet whose citizens, businesses and governments discover new ways to function productively, safely, sustainably and meaningfully. It will also be infused with astonishing technological progress and innovation and hope.

We call it the “net-zero era”.

For business leaders everywhere, it will be essential to recognize the drivers of this new era and grasp what’s important and what’s possible. That’s why we’ve developed a field guide to what the net-zero era entails, one we hope will help business leaders see ahead, get ahead and stay ahead of the drivers shaping the future.
