Sustainability as a one-solution label has been co-opted, but its definition still rings true for what humans are trying to achieve: the ability to maintain an ecological balance.
To make headway, brands and consumers must widen their lens to focus not just on the environment, but also on the social and economic imperatives that make up the trinity of sustainable futures.
This report cuts through the fog of confusion and reveals the journey we’re on as citizens, industry experts and brands. It demystifies sustainability with a practical step-by-step toolkit for your own business to follow, packed with tangible strategic opportunities. Finally, it presents three new inter-generational speculative scenarios as inspiration for how to plan for the carbon-conscious consumer behaviours of the 2030s.
Available to members of LS:N Global, who can access the report here.

Our Paralysis Paradox presentation unpacks how organisations must step up and become forces of change, no longer making pledges for 2050, but instead drawing on their expertise, assets and reach to equip, collaborate and horizon-map together with citizens.
The presentation examines key cross-sector shifts emerging from a world in transition.
Our Accredited Beauty presentation explores why companies must bring their expertise, research and accreditation to the fore, not only to prove the worthiness of their products but also to inspire spending.
Science and technological expertise will also be crucial to safeguard the industry against future shocks, securing supply chains and fuelling fresh directions for products and experiences.
