A very interesting interview here with Peter Lacey, Managing Director (Asia Pacific) at Accenture Consulting Services.
We particularly notice two things that he says:
First, carbon reduction in every product and service in the world needs to be of the order of seven to eight times what it is today. That means that for in some products and services we need to get to a tenth or less of what we have today. Incremental thinking isn’t going to get us there.
Second, we need systems thinking, and only around two percent of people are capable of systems thinking.
His greatest fear for the next ten years? That it takes a crisis before we change.
His greatest hope? That ‘sustainability’ becomes as embedded as globalisation and ecommerce have done, and that it becomes “the lens for growth” in companies and countries alike.
