“The suggestion that we can have everything — both encouraging ever-growing material wealth and maintaining a healthy natural environment — is, as the evidence makes clear, impossible and a recipe for disaster. Governments will need to reshape policies with this fundamental reality in mind. Businesses should build into their core values an acute appreciation that their role in society goes well beyond just maximizing profit and enacting CSR strategies as mitigation. Instead, they should be deploying business models that at their core are committed to shaping a prosperity that is fair and equitable.”
