The Global Challenge

The drivers for organizational change are global. To help individuals and organizations understand the magnitude of collection action needed we have set a Global Challenge:

By 2040 globally develop a quality of life somewhat like industrial societies today, but using less than half the virgin raw materials and less than half the energy as in the year 2000, and with no known toxic releases.

This is a Global Challenge, so as underdeveloped countries improve their quality they will have less opportunity to reduce their resource use. To cut resource use in half, developed countries will have to cut their current use by as much as seventy-five percent of 2000 usage.  It can be done with a combination of leadership, discipline and flexibility: by transforming your business model and becoming a Vigorous Learning Organization.
