Gerd’s Digital Conference on Sustainability and the Future of Capitalism: slides, audio and the video from our March 12 session

That was an amazing online conference (see details below). New events will be announced on our new theconference.digital site, here, but you may also sign up directly for our next free event with Anton Musgrave, March 26, 6pm CET, on The Future of Business, by going here.

A big thank-you to Tim Leberecht, Anton Musgrave and Brad Templeton for joining me as panelists: you guys rock!!

You can also download the ZOOM video recording via Wetransfer (approx. 2gb) or watch it on Youtube, below. Update March 18: we now have a much cleaner video cut from this session, here on YouTube.

TOPIC: SUSTAINABILITY AND THE FUTURE OF CAPITALISM
We believe that Sustainable will be the new Profitable.

1. Carbon Taxes: We must embrace the reality that wide-ranging and disruptive carbon taxes are pretty much inevitable. After the initial shock waves – and if done right – carbon taxes might not only inject Trillions of $/€ into climate change adaptation and mitigation measures, but may also fund up to 100 Million new jobs.

2. The Quadruple Bottom Line: The much debated shift to shareholder- (not just shareholder-) value is likely to reboot stock-markets around the world in the next decade, as we transition from the outmoded, single bottom-line of PROFIT to what I call the quadruple bottom-line: People, Planet, Purpose and Prosperity (in the essence, creating a new logic of ‘sustainable capitalism’ *Al Gore et al – 8years ago).

3. Responsible Investing: 2020 marks the beginning of a New Renaissance as responsible investing – and rapid divestment from fossil fuels, in particular – is quickly becoming a #1 topic with every fund and every family office, around the globe.

4. The humanly sustainable use of technology: Too much of a good thing can be a very bad thing: technology should be magic, not manic or even toxic. But who is ‘Mission Control’ for humanity – who is in charge of Digital Ethics?
