While I care deeply about climate action, I recognize that “sustainability” goes beyond the “E” of “ESG” and even transcends “ESG” itself. If pressing global challenges do not provide strong incentives for companies to consider integrating sustainability into their strategy, in the face of persistent pressure from investors, civil society, and other major stakeholders, the private sector cannot resist the need to broadly redefine the way it works. Finance is vital to the economy of both developed and emerging countries, and it can play a key role in moving towards a more sustainable future (and present) when used wisely. I firmly believe that sustainability, impact, and profitability can coexist and last. I am excited to build on Haas leadership principles to play through the SAIF initiative an active role in equipping generations of leaders with the thinking and real-world tools not to tackle but to embrace sustainability.
