VICE PRESIDENT, KPN

FLEUR VAN VELDHUIZEN (Netherlands)

“Wow, totally blown away by this course! We have a long way to go to make our planet sustainable (and no it's not just about climate change); reducing e-waste, fostering ethical tourism, even the day-day things we do as an individual and as a business, there's so much to be done. The first step is to understand what sustainability is, if you claim to care about our planet's health and where it's heading then you must do this course. ”

As you will learn in this course, this is critical not only for the survival of our planet but for the survival of your company.”

These are questions that are front of mind for every business leader today. This course is a MUST for everyone, working at any level, in an organisation - it injects the value systems and business acumen desperately needed by leaders of today to deliver a stronger tomorrow.”

“A useful, thought provoking introduction that brought the extent of our global situation into sharp focus with Earth Overshoot Day figures. Truly shocking! It also highlighted the possibilities to make change happen through the UN SDGs. It was interesting to explore the role of technology as both hero and villain. It is a huge subject that can get overwhelming with all the bad news. This course avoided that with a balanced approach that left me feeling empowered and pro-active. The inflection point this decade made the issues and need to take action very clear. The struggle of business and industry being used to having control and having to face shareholders, clients and employees is key. It was useful to have the advantages of being an early adopter laid out as well as the ability of the business sector to change fast. Business sector holds the most wealth to invest - $110 trn of 150 trn total global GDP. A very important figure!! I noticed an anomaly in the 'Financing change' module that I may have misunderstood, but may be worth your while checking. In Figure 1 under 'impact investing' I think you were saying 'trillions' while the actual figures are shown as billions on the chart. Thus the amount is a very small percentage of global GDP, not 35% but .035%. I apologize if I've got this wrong! I really liked the clear data on investment. Consequences of inaction, a great overview of the complexity and moving parts at play to keep in mind. They are all risks. The industry insights were very useful to have expanded out for scrutiny with the major risk factors highlighted. Small Steps Big Impact gave a practical way forward to deliver incremental change over time. You laid out very clearly how the private business sector will have to move funds and actions forwards fast to redress the damage done and make change for the future. You make a compelling case. The 10% change is a practical way forward to correct the course. Also the need for individual businesses to pull in the same direction as at the national and global level for the change to be delivered most efficiently. I absolutely understand the need for a holistic approach. On a personal note I want to sincerely thank Akhil and all at Earth51 for allowing me access to this course free of charge through being a volunteer with Ethical Reading. I really enjoyed the course and will be sure to publicise its value to my networks. Thank you for the great work you are doing! Would you be willing now or in the future to be a guest on the Ethical Reading Podcast? I am the host and would love our listeners to hear about your work. My email is lindaanneduff@gmail.com Thanks again, Kind Regards Linda Duff ”
