The National Business Initiative (NBI) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) are hosting the South African launch of Vision 2050: Time to Transform. We’ll be asking how business can lead the transformations needed for 9+ billion people to live well, within planetary boundaries by 2050.
The world faces three critical challenges: the climate emergency, nature loss and mounting inequality. Only collaboration at unprecedented levels between business, government and civil society, will create the impact and scale required to transform our systems to achieve our goal by 2050. WBCSD has not only imagined that future, they have been putting proactive steps in place to make this vision a reality.
Vision 2050: Time to Transform provides a framework to guide business action in line with the urgency of these challenges. As the local implementation partner of the WBCSD, NBI has participated in the co-creation of this vision. We want to see sustainable societies around the world and a South Africa that is thriving and inclusive economically, environmentally and socially. Vision 2050 can contribute to our thinking and help accelerate our members efforts towards achieving this transformation.
Join us on Thursday 15 July for the South African launch of WBCSD’s Vision 2050 update to find out more about this comprehensive framework for business action. We will discuss the nine transformation pathways and provide new perspectives on the mindset shifts required for real transformation.
Keryn James, Group Chief Executive Officer of ERM and Vice-Chair of WBCSD’s Executive Committee, will provide a keynote speech exploring how Vision 2050 guides companies on their transformation journeys to 2050.
The event will include company representatives from a range of key economic sectors as well as the following speakers:
Together with the WBCSD, we aim to journey on this transformation trajectory with business to 2050. Will you join us?
