[…] This aligns with the sentiment from a CEO roundtable I had the pleasure of moderating in the fall. The roundtable topic was the purpose-driven corporation. It was clear through the dialog that this phenomenon is not yesterday’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) window dressing. Sustainability at the broadest level is gaining considerable traction. Climate investing is driven by both a necessity to accelerate efforts to combat climate change and the investment opportunity it represents. Many stakeholders are now looking to capitalize on the energy transition. […]
[…] Energy transitions throughout history have ushered in times of dramatic change. While energy may be the biggest piece of this emerging story, it is part of a bigger narrative in what increasingly looks like a phase transition. That notion of dramatic change is echoed by several prominent sources. For example, Alec Ross in his recent book The Raging 2020s speaks of a world that resembles the 1930s, a growing sentiment that maps to my research on the period beginning in 1920. […]
