Managing, adapting and mitigating climate change is one of the biggest challenges and opportunities facing businesses today. Complex and multifaceted, it affects every aspect of our lives and is linked to a myriad of other social and environmental issues such as air pollution, deforestation, biodiversity loss, resource extraction, labor exploitation and income inequality.
At Haas we are rethinking business. We are developing sustainable new models. We believe business can be resilient and transformative in the face of climate change.
The financial sector must take a more proactive role in investing in low-carbon technologies and supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy. New technology and entrepreneurial systems are needed to drive the innovation the world needs. We must transition to renewable energy sources by investing in renewables but also building the infrastructure and storage needed for this transition. This transformation will require a collaborative effort from governments, businesses, civil society, and individuals.
We are redesigning economic practices, financial systems, technology innovation, production and energy. Business education will lead this transformation, providing the new approaches and new thinking.
