🗞️ Driving the news: Five key sustainability trends were prominent in 2023: the rise of decarbonization across various industries, the central role of finance in climate solutions, the growing focus on plastic waste management, the evolution of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) as a corporate tool, and the increasing importance of artificial intelligence in sustainability

🔭 The context: To pinpoint these trends, nearly 1,000 articles and op-eds were analyzed to identify the themes that popped up most often

🌍 Why it matters for the planet: These trends demonstrate a growing recognition of sustainability challenges and the efforts to address them through various means, including policy, innovation, and corporate responsibility
• However, the need for greater scale, scope, and speed in these efforts remains critical

⏭️ What's next: Looking forward, these trends are expected to continue evolving, with a focus on implementing effective solutions at a scale that matches the urgency of environmental challenges

💬 One quote: "Another year, another round of ups and downs. Still, 2023 saw plenty of progress.” (Joel Makower, founder of GreenBiz)
