Future-proof your business with a credible net-zero transition plan for the new economy.

Net Zero Business Models: Winning in the Global Net Zero Economy delivers a breakthrough approach to transition from business models contributing to climate disaster to Net Zero Business Models crucial to sustainability and profitability.

Based on the authors' business advisory expertise and insights from their research with over 200 best-in-class global companies, this book is an indispensable guide for executives, corporate directors, and institutional investors.

Discover how to implement a bona fide net zero transition plan and processes to:

  • Identify new Board and Investor expectations for Net Zero Transition Plans (Beyond ESG)
  • Ensure the Five eco-efficiency plans, processes and value drivers are in place as the foundation for a credible transition plan
  • Select one of Four Pathways to a Net Zero Business Model as strategic options
  • Apply the Three Domains for Systems Thinking required by leaders for Net Zero strategic leadership
  • Align key metrics, targets, and incentive designs to accelerate business model transition

Metrics and Targets are not a plan, and a commitment to net zero is not a business strategy. Net Zero Business Models has been endorsed by C-Suites, Boards and Institutional Investors representing over $ 80 trillion in assets under management. This is the playbook you need to win in the Net Zero Global Economy.
