Leadership in the Age of Transformation

It is business’ responsibility to lead the worldwide recovery and embark upon the ‘decade of action’ towards a resilient, circular, low-carbon and inclusive world. Covid-19 has revealed to the world just how critical yet fragile our global supply chains really are, and now more than ever is it apparent that sustainable procurement must be upheld and circularity should be pursued – all for the good of our planet and future.

Businesses need to push forward with the Net-Zero ambition as we try to deliver a more resilient and sustainable recovery. How companies can reduce carbon emissions and develop regenerative strategies that align with the 1.5 Target, whilst ensuring the business recovers commercially from the Covid-19 pandemic. This poses significant challenges, both large and small, across the globe.

Transform USA will be bringing together CSOs, CPOs and ESG Investors from across the world to share their latest insights, and more importantly, tangible strategies into how they are helping deliver the required transformation of business for a sustainable, circular, inclusive future post Covid-19.
