Working in sustainability, there is always more to learn, more to change, more to do, and more to solve. This is why it is especially important to take the time to pause, look around, and celebrate the successes and the transformations we have collectively achieved.
Several transformative trends have stood out over the past year, and we’d like to take a moment to celebrate these dynamic shifts with you, to show you the impact your work is having, to inspire you to examine how you might apply these principles in your own work, and to highlight the direction our industry is headed.
A TED talk reminded us of the value of looking beyond quantitative data points and incorporating the human perspective. We share our insights, what we see as GoBlu’s role in the Oracle/Guide paradigm, and invite you watch this thought-provoking presentation, called “The Human insights missing from big data.”
A special interview with our Co-Founder, Lars Doemer, explores how our industry has progressed when it comes to eliminating hazardous chemicals from our supply chains. He discusses the link with transparency, what he thinks has been the greatest game changer in recent years, and how consumers are able to engage around chemicals.
