Beyond Tomorrow. Building a sustainable future.
• Why is sustainability so relevant to the post-pandemic recovery?
• What steps to take in business ecosystem to guarantee sustainability?
In the face of the global challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic, the ability to look beyond the current event horizon becomes a key competence that leads to sustainable and resilient business. At present, the world is shifting towards a stakeholder model where companies do not only optimize short-term profits, but also seek long-term value creation by better understanding the needs of all their stakeholders, and society at large. There are two areas where the changes made are likely to stay with us for good: a new way of doing business and a new way of planning business. On the one hand, businesses have to respond to the new expectations of consumers and partners, as well as uphold the values they follow. On the other hand, businesses need to broaden perspectives, stay flexible, adaptive and more inclusive than ever. An entire ecosystem focused on long-term value created by all the participants makes business more resilient, efficient and better prepared to face the unknown.
