There is a tendency for all of us to narrow our horizons and really focus on us as individuals or us as individual institutions, rather than thinking about the complexity that exists in terms of systems and how all these independent parties interact with each other.
Part of it too is a belief that the systems need to embrace multiple types of stakeholders. It’s not just bringing together companies, it’s bringing together commercial institutions, government institutions, NGOs; identifying all the relevant participants that could make a difference in addressing a particular challenge and opportunity, and mobilizing them as a system to address that, using platforms as a way to help coordinate activity and accelerate problem solving.
These are the realities of a global community that’s made a clear choice to act on climate and build a safer, more prosperous future for generations to come. And while there is much more to do, these facts give me a sense of optimism that the world will continue to march toward a low-carbon future.
