Durch den EU Green Deal und bevorstehenden Regularien steigen die gesetzlichen Anforderungen und Verpflichtungen in den Bereichen „Environment“, „Social“ und „Governance“ (ESG) für Unternehmen kontinuierlich an. Um diesen Anforderungen zu begegnen, ist eine fundierte Bestandsanalyse bzw. Screening im Bereich ESG des Unternehmens unerlässlich. Auf dieser Grundlage können Unternehmen anschließend individuelle Konzepte und Strategien entwickeln, um Nachhaltigkeit langfristig und erfolgreich in ihre Unternehmensstruktur zu integrieren und auszubauen.

THE ART OF LIVING

David Shah (View-Publications)
What we want is: The joy of surprise, inventiveness and experimentation, a future informed by the past, a past informed by the future, memories and new experiences, symbiosis with nature, design that allows us to express our personalities and priorities, a connection between outer and inner space. Words, words, words, haven’t we been here before? Well, this time, it’s different and consumers are looking to designers to use their creative skills and play their part. DAVID SHAH unravels a morass of shifting trends to understand what design means in our time.
