In 2022, debating whether to incorporate sustainability into your business core strategy is no longer an option. Paying attention to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues is becoming increasingly critical for all companies across all industries. At the same time, organisations worldwide need a new form of leadership development that helps them to reframe their purpose, strategy, and culture. Each episode of the Re: Think podcast gives you access to the new thinkers transforming the world of business today, and the talks that matter. - Nicoleta Talpes, Host of the Re: Think Podcast.
