The Sustainable Business Network (NZSBN) has collated 12 predictions for sustainable business this year.
As with most things “sustainability” related, the focus is on environmental issues (not that there is anything wrong with that) but it was great to see a media organisation pick up on the people message, especially a business editor.
Here’s what Maria Slade, Business Editor, The Spinoff had to say:
“Demonstrating a purpose other than making money for their shareholders is going to be one of the biggest challenges for firms in 2020, because today’s customers and employees are no longer willing to tolerate businesses that generate profits at the expense of people and the planet.”
Now who could disagree with that?
