Commit to women in business

Before ESG became mainstream, I was used to attending private equity events and being among a small minority of women present. Thankfully, now we are far more numerous. From my own life, I know how important it is for women to see other women leading, and I was fortunate to see women leading at senior levels in organizations all of my life.

How global business can drive climate action

Environmental Sustainability

Climate change is the crisis of our time. We have under a decade to get our planetary carbon emissions under control. Those of us in business – especially global businesses – have more power to create value by fighting climate change than ever before. Global businesses can drive forward innovative technologies that create energy using the earth’s renewable resources. They can move quickly when a solution is promising. They can deploy capital in flexible ways to scale solutions across the globe. And, they can do all of this while creating well-paying jobs of the future.
