The Anthropocene – a game changer for all business

This used to be a small world on a big planet. But recently things have changed. In just two generations this has developed into a big world on a small planet. We now live in the Anthropocene – the geological era of humankind. This is a game changer for all business.

With change and challenges there is not only risk, but also opportunity. For the frontrunners, who realize that the Anthropocene is here to stay, and who understand why sustainability now is a prerequisite for success, new possibilities to gain competitive advantage are now opening up.
