We want to get Anders’ view on being good in a ‘bad’ world. AGC recently published a report which reviewed the Fortune 500 strategic goals. Looking for climate-related objectives, they found only 6% of these companies’ strategic goals sought to address climate change, distributed across 89 of the 500 companies.Why is this so, even after all the increased awareness about climate change in recent years? What are the implications of these companies undervaluing the planet? And how does Anders think this will all change as a result of COVID-19?Check out A Good Company at agood.com *EXCLUSIVE DISCOUNT* A Good Company is offering Switch listeners an exclusive discount code for 20% off your first order!
