Sustainability & ESG

How can purpose unlock systemwide sustainability transformations?

Show Notes

“Long-term well-being for all is the ultimate goal of an economy.”

This can be easy to forget, since today's economic systems are largely designed for profit-maximization. But capital is not valuable in itself. It is merely a tool to move humanity towards long-term well-being.

Putting this insight into practice requires a radical rethinking of business-as-usual. Companies must recognize sustainability as their raison d'être. After all, what is sustainability if not the pursuit of long-term well-being for all?

**In this episode, we learn from Dr. Victoria Hurth about how purpose can help companies position sustainability at the core of their operations - for widespread change.**

Victoria is a pracademic who helps organizations and markets define, operationalize and achieve sustainability. She is currently a member of the Sustainability Impact Committee of the Una Terra Venture Capital Fund and a Fellow of the prestigious Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL).
