Sustainability used to count as a cost – but no longer. Increasingly, decision makers in business and government alike are coming to view sustainability as an opportunity – one they can’t afford to miss. And the rapid-fire innovations of the Fourth Industrial Revolution are generating these opportunities in practically every industrial sector. The World Economic Forum has developed a new tool to help policy makers and executives evaluate these innovations for their potential role in specific contexts. getAbstract recommends this informative report to leaders in business and government.
