Global Sustainability Study on Future Trends and Standards by 2030

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Why?

The world is in transformation, both with sustainability challenges and new opportunities. The 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to 2030 (SDGs) clearly describe which objectives the world needs to reach a sustainable level of living - for all people, in all countries. At the same time, global megatrends towards 2050 such as projected population growth to 10 billion, a doubling of per capita income and increasing urbanization levels will lead to unprecedented consumption and demand for building, food, mobility and further products and services. The world and all industries need to transform fast under time pressure. Sustainable solutions are needed that ensure meeting future demand growth in a sustainable way, protecting the Earth’s resources for future generations and meeting social standards and objectives.

To find out what that might look like, we are inviting sustainability experts, entrepreneurs and startup founders, thought leaders and industry experts, NGO experts and investors, academics and influencers from around the globe to share their views. 

What are the trends and standards that will drive a sustainable transformation in the next decades towards 2030 in specific industries and regions, and which capabilities will companies need to develop to be successful in this transformation?

What?

The global study is a joint project sponsored by global management consultancy A.T. Kearney for an undisclosed client, conducted by the Sustainable Natives eG Berlin (an open platform co-operative for sustainability transformation) and Impact Hub Berlin, together with the global Impact Hub network.
