What Drives Sustainability Professionals?
During the webcast, each of the panelists shared what inspired them to join the sustainability industry. Dhillon shared this about his passion and motivation for starting FigBytes, “I love how technology can solve massive problems, and that was the seed for trying to figure out if I can bring my passion for doing something on sustainability together with technology.”
What About the SEC Climate Disclosure Proposal?
Taking place just days after the SEC climate-related disclosure proposal, the webcast provided the panel with an opportunity to react to the news and share their thoughts. The general consensus was the proposal was welcome and needed, and we can expect even more on the regulation and standard horizon. “Look at the announcements from the SEC… in the last year or so we have been tracking legislation and mandates in different parts of the world… this is a growing trend, this is going to continue. There’s going to be harmonization globally as we go forward,” Dhillon stated.
What Does The Next Decade Hold?
As the central focus of the webcast, each of the panel experts had unique takes on what the next ten years will look like for ESG and sustainability. For Dhillon, he expects this will be the decade of action and adaptation. Here’s a sample of what he had to say, “we missed a window… by default we are in a phase where it is about adaptation, I don’t think we have a lot of options left for mitigation. From here on I think we will have a decision-making decade, as we start to trend toward these big commitments that organizations have made.”
