Explore more about their fascinating journey from our discussion with Elisa Dahl Walderhaug, Head of Consulting at CEMAsys.
She continues by telling that, “I pursued my main degree in Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation - my favorite subject. During my studies on the beautiful islands of Hawaii, I saw for myself what physical climate change did to ocean biodiversity. Coral reefs were grey and unlivable in contrast to the tourist catalogues that portrayed a colorful and thriving ocean. This was soon after the financial crisis of 2008, and people were really struggling to get by. For a long time the whole economy was in a deep crisis and the work with oceans and wildlife were put on hold. For me, this adds the S and the G to my ESG. It developed my sustainability understanding of the need for the full triple-bottom to change the status quo and make a JUST transition.”

His explanation of the S curve of innovation mentioned in his TED Talks is worth a listen and makes me believe that history will repeat itself and change will happen faster than ever.
One blog everyone interested in Sustainability should read is ESG on a Sunday with Sasja Beslik. He has shown a lot of courage and taken upon his responsibility to share the financial corporate side in a transparent and interesting way. However, the most amazing and bravest voice of them all is Greta Thunberg. I hear her and I want to act, not just talk.
