One thing I think we need to do, is to live more in the present when it comes to creating a safe climate. We need to act right now. Looking towards net-zero targets into the future is too late – we can’t create the future from the future, the time to act is now.
“There are a multitude of levers we can pull to create a better future for all Australians. I direct my efforts into two of those levers, business and education. The business community needs to reduce its aspirational talk, and start doing and measuring more – we’ve started but we need to step that up. And so much more can be done in education – I teach across several academic institutions, and we can be doing more to educate our future leaders on sustainability”.
