This is a book that presents sustainable performance' as the goal: the zone that sits between sustainability and commercial performance. The need for productivity and resilience within this changing landscape, and the value creation drivers are clear and yet the failure rate is high. Climate change and the unsustainable use of resources will require a shift from incremental to transformational change. The window is short as the world pivots towards a decarbonised economy. We are the first generation to have all the unequivocal facts at our fingertips and the last generation to be able to do anything about it. This is the decisive decade. What happens over the next 10 years will determine what happens over the next 1000s of years.
