The theme of The Natural Step’s upcoming Accelerate conference is “Collaborating for Sustainability.” Over the past two years, we at The Natural Step have dedicated ourselves to better understanding what it takes to collaborate more effectively across organizations to bring about the kind of breakthrough results that can shift systems toward sustainability. Accelerate will be another chance to learn together on this topic.
One thing we’ve learned is that systems change is unlikely to happen if we only collaborate with our natural allies. Instead, transformative change really does require understanding and working with those whose interests and perspectives are different than our own.
Nowhere is this more evident than in the hyper-polarized debates about Canada’s energy system and response to climate change, arguably our most important sustainability challenge. My observation has been that while many people tend to lament the polarization, we also tend to go back to mostly working in the realms in which we are most comfortable, mostly engaging with people who share our views. What do we miss when we follow these patterns?

Early in 2013, The Natural Step engaged the Stahl Mananagement Team in a process to look at the big picture global trends and responses from the corporate sector and identify specific business opportunities for the company.

In this broad-ranging conversation, Dr. Robèrt shares his perspectives on historical paradigm shifts, what it was that helped Natural Step clients like IKEA, Nike and Interface make radical shifts towards sustainability, the gap between what science knows about sustainability and what the popular media, public and many governments perceive to be true, and the responsibility of highly industrialized nations towards the emerging economies of the world.
