“A hallmark of human and market progress has been our capacity to translate breakthroughs in our understanding of how the world works and put them into action. The new information we have access to now is that impact matters and is a powerful force in meeting the needs and aspirations of people, conserving our planet and driving future prosperity; that changes everything. Leaders are identifying opportunities to act in this breakthrough and create new value.”
