Interview Of The Week: Marc Buckley, World Economic Forum’s Expert Network

Marc Buckley

Who: Marc Buckley is an advisor to the United Nations and a member of the World Economic Forum’s Expert Network, advising on innovation, climate change, agriculture and food and beverages. He is currently working with Fortune 1000 companies on their sustainability reporting and objectives.

Topic: Why it makes sense for corporates to embrace innovations that actively help solve the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Quote: “Publicly traded companies who take sustainability seriously seem to significantly outperform the markets across various geographies. Not only are clients and consumers buying from companies that support their values by being sustainable and protecting the environment, they are divesting and moving their support from organizations that are endangering human health and the environment and not taking true cost and total environmental cost into account in their daily operations.”
