In 2019 we worked with IKEA Retail (Ingka Group) to deliver ONE HOME, ONE PLANET (OHOP) at one of their leading sustainable stores in Kaarst, Germany. The event is part of the company’s ambitious strategy to become people and planet positive.
Xynteo’s new report "Accelerating India's Sustainable Human-Centric Growth," unveils four powerful archetypes, aligned with India’s G20 vision. These archetypes offer more than theoretical constructs; they provide strategic blueprints for collaborative action between governments, businesses, and communities to materialise a shared vision of low-carbon, inclusive, and participatory growth in line with United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
In less than a week, world leaders, community organisations and NGOs will come together in Dubai to plan for accelerated climate action – and the role of business must be part of the discussion. The Conference of Parties is a unique and intensive process that requires genuine effort and engagement from those attending. It is paramount that business leaders show up at COP28 with a mindset and a preparedness that fosters radical collaboration for positive action – here's how.
Clean hydrogen is gaining prominence in the global transition to sustainability. India, with its National Green Hydrogen Mission, aims to play a pivotal role in leading the shift, but faces challenges such as high production costs. Xynteo looks at how to unlock clean hydrogen's potential for a sustainable energy future.
The global energy mix is expected to go through critical changes over the coming decades. On the one hand, energy consumption is expected to increase by 14% through to 2050 requiring new energy infrastructure, whilst on the other, more established energy systems will see dramatic changes to make them more secure and lower carbon emissions. In this article we discuss three plays that can highlight the opportunities and challenges to scaling P2X deployment.
The built environment is the agglomeration of man-made spaces – their structures, parts, and components. These structures provide us our work, recreation, and living spaces, and we can expect global building stock to double by 2050. On the other hand, the built environment is responsible for 40% of global emissions. As we seek to create safe and hospitable places for our growing global population, we must equally reduce their negative impact on the environment.
As political, NGO, community and business leaders come together in Dubai for COP28, we know the great challenges they face. To realise a net zero future, and grasp the opportunities of a new economy, businesses need a generation of visionary leaders who can balance priorities and shift their model towards regenerative growth. But what does this look like, and how do we make it happen?
In the build-up to another COP, the striking resemblance from year to year in the narrative is disheartening. If we want to see mainstream transformation in the impact of business operations, there are two critical elements which must be part of the approach: pre-competitive collaboration, or ‘playing nice’; and genuine supplier engagement, or ‘getting our hands dirty’.
For all its imperfections, the G20 is a remarkable example of leaders, nations, friends, and some-time competitors coming together in the spirit of collaboration and in recognition that we are better when working on problems from diverse perspectives. Xynteo Senior Partner, Vipul Kumar, looks at four of the big moves to come out of last weekend’s Summit in New Delhi.
Earth Overshoot Day is a clear reminder that ignoring our impact on resource consumption will not only lead to a darker planetary future but destroy economic value and cause crises within society. Businesses and their leaders must look at two interlocked strategies to address this challenge: mitigation and regeneration.
Regulation is often viewed as a hindrance to business, but the EU’s pending sustainability regulatory framework is so much more. Powered by data technology, new corporate responsibilities towards the climate, biodiversity, human welfare, and workplace rights will transform value chains, making them faster, smarter, safer, and shareable.
