Announcing Gerd Leonhard’s first virtual conference: March 12 2020, on Sustainable Futures


Announcing my new virtual conference series, starting March 12 2020

If you can't travel right now... try this instead

The covid19 virus is quickly becoming a major interruptor as far as live events, conferences and generally larger gatherings of people is concerned. I remain hopeful that it can be contained in the next few weeks but I also think we really need to start looking at alternatives for traveling to places and meeting face-to-face (even though I very much enjoy doing that, the environmental costs are staggering, as well). This will take some serious adjusting but I think it can be quite fruitful, as well. Hence I am announcing my first online conference, today, using the amazing ZOOM platform.

I firmly believe that Sustainable will be the new Profitable, and that businesses and organisations that get on board early will have much better chances of striving in this new era.  I will present and discuss the following topics (see more content on this, here):

1. Carbon Taxes:
We must embrace the reality that wide-ranging and disruptive carbon taxes are pretty much inevitable. After the initial shock waves – and if done right – carbon taxes might not only inject Trillions of $/€ into climate change adaptation and mitigation measures, but may also fund up to 100 Million new jobs.

2. The Quadruple Bottom Line: The much debated shift to shareholder- (not just shareholder-) value is likely to reboot stock-markets around the world in the next decade, as we transition from the outmoded, single bottom-line of PROFIT to what I call the quadruple bottom-line: People, Planet, Purpose and Prosperity (in the essence, creating a new logic of ‘sustainable capitalism’ *Al Gore et al – 8years ago).

3. Responsible Investing: 2020 marks the beginning of a New Renaissance as responsible investing – and rapid divestment from fossil fuels, in particular – is quickly becoming a #1 topic with every fund and every family office, around the globe.

4. The humanly sustainable use of technology: Too much of a good thing can be a very bad thing: technology should be magic, not manic or even toxic. But who is ‘Mission Control’ for humanity – who is in charge of Digital Ethics? Do we need more regulation?
