TBLI Talk: Transforming the Business of Sustainability

Dr. Geoff Kendall is an entrepreneur whose experience spans sustainability consulting, high-tech startups, corporate communications and academic research. He holds a PhD in artificial intelligence, and has co-founded two software businesses. The second of these was acquired by a global technology company, where Geoff went on to serve as marketing director for three years.

Geoff switched careers in 2010, joining London-based think-tank SustainAbility, and for four years he led the communications team and advised some of the world’s biggest corporations on sustainable business models. In so doing he realised that there was no reliable way to measure how sustainable a company is, and how much more it needs to do, and he wanted to fix that.

So in late 2013 Geoff left to set up Future-Fit Foundation, where he led development of the Future-Fit Business Benchmark and served as CEO for 9 years.

In May 2022 Geoff left Future-Fit to start Transition Agency, whose aim is to offer the antidote to business strategy and sustainability consulting.

What will you learn:

  • How sustainability teams should be approaching CSRD/ESRS
  • Why consulting is perpetuating our problems, not solving them
