PwC: Supply Chains Threatened by Six-Degree Global Warming

PwC: Supply Chains Threatened by Six-Degree Global Warming | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
Some 85 percent of companies have more complex supply chains as a result of globalization, and adjusted climate forecasts mean businesses should expect climate change to have an even more destructive effect than previously assumed on supply ...

 

Two new remarkable reports by PricewaterhouseCoopers paint a scary 6-degrees climate future and economic turmoil for global business. High time one of the big consultancies goes beyond the usual "let's keep it positive" approach and starts talking reality.

Is it time for spirituality in business?

Is it time for spirituality in business? | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

"The new economics is a kind of journey, asserting, putting into practice, dealing with the side-effects and moving on – and nowhere more than in the business of asserting that spirituality is also an economic concept."

 

Good article from the New Economics Foundation.

Businesses seeking success should look to nature for inspiration

Businesses seeking success should look to nature for inspiration | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

"Today's rapidly changing business environment calls for businesses that thrive in such environments: businesses more akin to living systems. These firms of the future learn and adapt; they aren't structured and siloed, which stifles learning and agility. They are bottom-up, decentralised, interdependent, multifunctional, self-organising units – unlike the centralised, top-down, hierarchically-managed monoliths of the 20th century. Organisations need to transform into units that are inter-connected, value-led and inspired by nature."

 

Good article at the Guardian's Sustainable Business blog making the case for a change of thinking in business models: away from competitiveness and proft-maximising and focussing on cooperation, networking and resilience.

Is there an optimal degree of sustainability?

Is there an optimal degree of sustainability? | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

Very interesting essay on the Ethical Corporation website looking at trade-offs when companies move to more corporate sustainability.

 

The essay concludes that there is indeed an optimal level of sustainability for companies but that in the future this level will be increasing.
