    ESG or Sustainability: You Choose

    As an ESG practitioner, you now have two choices:

    You can double down on the (delusional) notion that ESG makes the world better (instead of the reality that it’s predatory delay, which Alex Steffen defines as “the blocking or slowing of needed change, in order to make money off unsustainable, unjust systems in the meantime” – I can hear you objecting as I write, but I encourage you to read this definition carefully and challenge yourself to leverage evidence to prove it wrong.)

    Or

    You can embrace bona fide sustainability, which ensures its claims by gauging impacts vis-à-vis ecological ceiling and social foundation thresholds (sometimes visualized as a Doughnut, thanks to Kate Raworth’s 2012 reinterpretation of Barbara Ward’s 1974 conceptualization of social “inner limits” and ecological “outer limits” for the United Nations).

    ​— From ESG or Sustainability: You Choose by Bill Baue

    Join us for a Deep Dive with Bill Baue, author of the IE Magazine article, ESG or Sustainability: You Choose

    Bill Baue

    As an internationally recognized expert on Sustainability Context (Thresholds & Allocations), Thriveability, and Online Stakeholder Engagement, Bill Baue catalyzes systemic transformation. As a serial social entrepreneur, he has co-founded and instigated several enterprises: r3.0, Science Based Targets, Sustainability Context Group, Sea Change Radio, and Currnt.
    Baue currently serves as Senior Director of r3.0 (Redesign for Resilience & Regeneration), a not-for-profit common good that networks a global community of Positive Mavericks focused on transcending incrementalism to trigger necessary transformations that enact living systems principles. In this role, he serves as the Systems Convener for the Connecticut River Valley Bioregional Collaborative of the Capital Institute’s Regenerative Communities Network. His most recent major writing is as author of the White Paper From Monocapitalism to Multicapitalism: 21st Century System Value Creation (December 2020).

    Baue has worked with prominent organizations across the sustainability ecosystem, including Audubon, Cabot Creamery Coop, Ceres, GE, Harvard, several United Nations agencies (UNCTAD, UNEP, UNGC, UNRISD, etc…), Walmart, and Worldwatch Institute. He serves on the Board of Co-op Power and as Senior Advisor to Preventable Surprises, and he is a certified Prosocial facilitator.

    A Voyage to Net Zero: How Space-Based Technologies Can Deliver the Glasgow Climate Pact

    Resulting from the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference in November, the Glasgow Climate Pact offers the best and final chance to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels. However, everyone must step up efforts to deliver on its ambitious — and necessary — commitments. The pact identifies key areas for action on climate change, including adaptation, mitigation, loss and damage, and climate finance, as well as technology transfer and capacity-building.

    The space sector is uniquely placed to aid progress across all these areas — especially in driving the adoption of innovative tools to inform climate-based decision-making. Space technologies can also track emission levels as countries move toward their midcentury targets, helping to hold governments and companies to account.

    To limit warming to 1.5 C, the world must lower carbon dioxide emissions by 45% by 2030 and data insights must drive action toward significant reductions. Close collaboration with the space sector will be key in enabling scalable, impactful solutions.

    This event, hosted by Devex in partnership with the Satellite Applications Catapult, will look at how the space sector can drive forward the key action areas identified at COP 26, as well as accelerate the introduction of new solutions to the increasingly urgent climate crisis.

    Time: 10:00 AM | 3:00 PM GMT
