A new year is a new start, a time to recommit to our collective mission of impact and to generating people and planet-positive action. At Xynteo, we left 2023 with a sense of optimism in the potential for the coming year. However, 2023 also brought a sense of realism with a controversial COP that did not go nearly far enough to accelerate progress, and an inflationary environment that continues to strain household finances. To truly achieve a brighter future, we need leaders, organisations, and partners that can confidently set and deliver the path to good growth, for both people and planet.
The climate movement reminds us of our shared hopes for a just and sustainable future that leaves no one behind. The crisis remains the quintessential challenge of our times, one that necessitates global collaboration. Though the road ahead is long and international cooperation is more difficult than ever, the COP frameworks are a geopolitical bright spot that unite world leaders to continually ratchet up collective action.
In our annual viewpoint, we look back at 2023, and forward to 2024 - and discuss our view of the highlights and challenges facing five critical sectors (energy, finance, FMCG, heavy industry, and transport) on the road to a people and planet-positive future.
