"We are living at a critical time for the planet. Our species is pushing past the capacity of planetary resources and systems to meet our needs. Corporate leaders are confronting the physical reality of limits to growth in their businesses, and the new geo political realities of a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world. The urgency of our mission as sustainability leaders creates enormous pressure and I have experienced first hand the burnout that can result from working in this role, in a corporate environment that may be resistant to change."
