Business sustainability covers a wide array of topics, from carbon emissions to inclusion and circularity. To make them work together, we must first recognise the importance of one crucial enabler. One without which all other measures would be inadequate.
Enter transparency. Focusing on transparency is powerful as it ensures our insight is accurate. It can tackle corruption and smoke and mirrors tactics used by companies, governments and organizations around the world. It can also enable consumers to compare and make conscious decisions.
That’s why we’re determined to build better transparency into our supply chain and business as a whole, allowing us to more accurately chart progress and identify opportunity. By publishing the life cycle assessment (LCA) of Polestar 2 and targeting blockchain traceability and CO2e tracking, we’re making serious strides in the right direction.
Polestar Head of Sustainability Fredrika Klarén clarifies it all above.
The Overview Effect: a cognitive shift in awareness reported by some astronauts during spaceflight, often while viewing the Earth from outer space. Those who have experienced it describe a new understanding of the uniqueness, fragility, and relative smallness of our one and only home. And while it’s easy to imagine the impact this must have; it seems that spaceflight is a prerequisite. Which is why we sat down with Karen Nyberg.
The most innovative ideas are brought about through creative collaboration. Ideas that have the power to change; to revolutionise the status quo and spark social and environmental change. By connecting thoughts, experiences, skills, and intuition, visionary endeavours, like design, can be elevated from good to great.
Time is running out. To stay within the 1.5-degree target, we need to take immediate action. In the quest for circularity, transitioning to electric transport is one of several imperative steps. This step calls for a change in behaviour, from people, businesses, and governments. Because frankly, we don’t have time not to.
