This year the Sustainable Business Australia ‘Smart Business in Action’ (SBiA) Summits convened more than 175 sustainability leaders across Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne to hear speakers talk on business and sustainability; how business is setting the pace.
One of the most interesting themes coming out of the Summits was that short-termism is an ongoing major barrier for change in Australia. It was described as a threat for businesses and threat for a sustainable Australian economy.
Whilst business leadership is making progress in some areas, most speakers felt that long-term policy architecture is needed for business to capitalize the opportunities of the emerging greener global economy.
