    The Age of the Curve Hugger

    Why society expects sustainable innovation from your business now.

    The ratification of the United Nations Sustainable Development ‘Global Goals’ in September 2015, by 193 countries including Australia, is clear evidence of a global appetite for a unifying vision of sustainable development.

    Futureye has developed a paper “The age of the curve hugger” to unpack what sustainable innovation is and examine what the strategic risks are for companies that ignore the opportunities to collaborate on sustainable development or to innovate using the UN’s framework.
