hello john

12 trillion dollars of new sustainability market sounds like a huge underestimate -is this an english speaking persons analysis or does it include brainstorming with chinese (where digital leaders like alibaba are making sustainability markets the main game for half a billion under 30s to develop ,life and livelihoods around) who are way more urgent on most sustainability challenges? 

do you have chapter in beijing - i  visit monthly to update one minute youtubes that youth around the world want to build sustainability livelihoods with- i am always amazed that whatever i bring students from tsinghua and peking university seem to pick up and then accelerate much faster

i think you know john that for many years i tried to connect yunus sustainability challenges with historically black and rulra states in usa; today we have converged all of that out of baltimoire communities which began all effective social justice case interventions for black and american women in 1881; we hope our baltimore projects are the most collaborative under 30s can find in sustainability world and certainly in trump-ruled states- please tell me if there is anyone in baltimore dc region i could be trying to linkin- there are so many tipping points - i only wish sustainability goals had been called collaboration goals

'It is time to put natural cycles — particularly the carbon cycle — at the core of the sustainable business agenda,' argue John Elkington and Lorraine Smith. One candidate for the role of Copernicus, they suggest, is Paul Hawken, whose latest book Drawdown is billed as 'the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming.' A must-read!
 
The Business and Sustainable Development Commission has identifed SDG-related market opportunities worth at least $12 trillion a year by 2030. Unlocking these new markets will require a massive re-orientation of global financial flows, suggests Richard Roberts in our latest blog.
