"The world is heading into a major crisis, triggered by the abuse of Natural Capital that is reaching an alarming level. Business is a fundamental part of the solution to avoid the existential consequences for the human race, however, to be successful Business must change the way it measures performance. Directed by the right legal system and pushed forward by a change of consumer mindset, business must now truly respect both Natural and Human Capital. Given its power to both accelerate and scale the new model, the financial world is an essential part of this transformation, but there must be an honest redirection of the flow of capital toward activities that respects both the SDG requirement and the Paris Agreement commitment."
