The current trend is not our destiny: #MoveTheDate

The past does not necessarily determine our future. Our current choices do. Through wise, forward-looking decisions, we can turn around natural resource consumption trends while improving the quality of life for all people.

While our planet is finite, human possibilities are not. The transformation to a sustainable, carbon-neutral world will succeed if we apply humanity’s greatest strengths: foresight, innovation, and care for each other. The good news is that this transformation is not only technologically possible, it is also economically beneficial and our best chance for a prosperous future.

In fact, facilitating this transformation is the best strategy for the long-term success of any organization, including and especially businesses. Learn more about the one-planet prosperity strategic framework in the new e-book by Global Footprint Network and Schneider Electric.

We have identified five key areas that are defining our long-term trends most forcefully. All of them are shaped by our individual and collective choices. Explore these options in more detail, and find out how many days we can #MoveTheDate embracing these kinds of solutions.
