Businesses are lagging far behind in their ability to adapt to a world where customers, investors and regulators are exponentially demanding that they reduce climate risks, preserve biodiversity and create more inclusive growth. Technical and financial solutions are available to move from awareness to concrete results – at the scale needed.

PARIS, Jan. 07 /CSRwire/ - Today, Ksapa, a Paris-based mission-driven company combining consulting, impact investing and advocacy services, publishes a pioneering report showing how companies can accelerate their environmental and social transformation to remain competitive in a yet more demanding world where customers, regulators and investors require more efforts in decarbonation, water resource management, deforestation, circularity, inclusive growth, and respect for human rights across more globalized and complex operations. 

On the key findings of the report, Ksapa CEO Farid Baddache said: “Despite poor collective progress made in the past decade on climate, biodiversity and inequalities, we all need to find concrete perspectives to embrace the 2020 decade with a positive mindset. This pioneering report explores practical and tested solutions to accelerate business transformation and provides insight into how businesses can adapt to the triple digital, environmental and social revolutions underway”. 

On the role of private investors to channel solutions for climate, biodiversity and inequalities, Ksapa Managing Director Raphaël Hara said: “The financial context is favorable to innovations addressing the environmental and social challenges of the 2020 decade. With an ongoing unstoppable surge in negative yields, investors are searching for new ways and places to direct their investments. The report shows multiple ways to generate financial return for investors, and positive impact for people, at the same time”. 

This report will inspire and encourage deployments of concrete programs combining interests of business decision makers, investors and their stakeholders to accelerate transition to more resilient and more inclusive societies. Ksapa experts have:

  • Screened the practices of 80 multinational companies, supported by research and series of interviews.

  • Reviewed business trends and applications in Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Internet of Things, 5G, Blockchain, Quantum Computing, drones, and other digital acronyms that are reshaping social interactions and economic activities across societies in depth.

In response to the findings of this forward-looking report, Ksapa experts are actively working on the design of impact investing programs that bring together different private and industrial investors to better manage the environmental and social risks associated with complex global supply chains. Programs are designed to provide solutions at the scale of the issues, generating social and environmental impact for beneficiaries, while also creating positive financial returns for investors.
