“Despite all the problems that our world faces today… we are making progress as a society. The information age… is forcing more transparency and inclusiveness. It’s allowing people to hear and to be heard and to have open debates about very fundamental and important issues like inequality and human rights, climate change, and political or economic systems.” – Niels Lorijn, CEO, Capdesia Group
“I believe in humanity and kindness for action, and I believe in cooperation and collaboration. Collaboration helps networks and businesses innovate more effectively and to achieve their concrete goals in a more efficient way” – Ravindra Ngo, CEO, The Asian Network
“It takes a village. Only by working together can we hope to accelerate the transition to a net-zero economy.” – Helle Bank Jorgensen, CEO, Competent Boards
“What gives me hope is that if we can do it, everyone else can.” – David Katz, CEO, Plastic Bank
“We are in an economic headwind right now. However, accomplishing our goals and targets in the midst of such a situation will lead to gaining the trust of society.
