With the year coming to a close, it's a great time to pause for reflection. In looking back, we can learn from our successes and mistakes, gain new perspective and see where we need to go next.
While many of us are eager to wipe 2020 from memory, the events of this past year have, effectively, changed it all.

So what can businesses take away from this year to help us effectively address the climate and nature crisis and forge a better way forward? Let’s dive in.
