In March 2023, for a period of six weeks, data was collected from 2,253 sustainability professionals worldwide.

The survey tackled things like:

A great many unexplored strategies lay dormant, ready to be unearthed. These innovative approaches, when combined, have the potential to generate transformative tipping points, steering us towards a more positive and sustainable future.
