Havas Genus and Forum for the Future held the first event in their roundtable series designed to ignite sustainability ambitions for leaders within the space. Caro Ruttledge, Partner at Gate One, chaired a discussion with Sally Uren, CEO of Forum for the Future, Zoe Arden, fellow for CISL, and Briony McKinn, HR and people development director for EasyJet, discussing what is a sustainable mindset, what opportunities can it bring to your organisation, how can you shift the mindset of your organisation and what are the current barriers to this change.
So far, sustainability transformation has been focused on short-term fixes and limited to ‘sticking a plaster’ over the problem. We’re now at a cross-road – we need to address the root causes of the problems through deep, systemic transformation. This includes reconfiguring systems from linear to interconnected, ensuring transitions to new energy, new production and consumption models. This transformation towards a more regenerative future starts with individual leaders and organisations shifting their mindsets from ‘do no harm’ towards ‘just and regenerative’.
