why

The world is facing great environmental, social, ethical and economical challenges. More than ever, the world needs a new approach to development and well being. The recovery from the Covid-19 crisis must lead to a different reality: an inclusive, green and circular economy that respects the limits of the Planet and puts the well being of the communities in the centre of the decision making process.

Covid-19 has shown us that overnight transformational change is possible. A different world, a different economy is suddenly dawning. This is an unprecedented opportunity to move away from unmitigated growth at all costs and the old fossil fuel economy, and deliver a lasting balance between people, prosperity and our planetary boundaries.” Club of Rome

It is clear that Governments, Municipalities, Universities, Companies  and Banks need  to have the courage and foresight to implement policies and activities that are aligned with the 2050 carbon neutrality goals, with the Sustainable Development Goals and are able to respect biodiversity and the equilibrium of the ecosystems.

At SystemicSphere, we act as agents of change, helping organizations to better understand how these issues can impact their businesses and what should they do to become more resilient organizations.

Sustainability is key. Sustainable Management is needed. Sustainable and climate finance will become the new normal.
