Key issues: Sustainability and climate change

Megatrends such as resource scarcity, climate change, and technological breakthroughs are changing the competitive landscape. Impacts may include increases in extreme weather and rising sea levels, which could make traditional methods of farming, hunting, and fishing difficult or impossible in some places. The need for sustainable solutions may well be at odds with the need for resources to fuel growth and feed populations. As organizations update their sustainability strategies, boards are increasingly engaging with stakeholders to prepare for the future.
