Rewiring the Economy – A 10-year plan to lay the foundations for a sustainable economy

Speaker: Aris Vrettos, Programme Director, Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL)

Rewiring the Economy is CISL’s ten-year plan to lay the foundations for a sustainable economy.

Rewiring the Economy starts from the principle that the economy can and should be delivering the outcomes demanded by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). By working together as partners, three key actors in the economy – business, government and finance – are identified to take responsibility for achieving this aim. A set of ten interconnected tasks are offered to guide the structural and cultural changes that will be necessary in the economy to do this.It has a simple logic: six sustainability ambitions to be delivered by three economic actors (business, government and finance) via ten interconnected tasks.

The plan is a strategic compass bearing for business, government and finance leaders around the world. We hope it will inspire new collaborations and enable fundamental change in how the global economy is harnessed for social and environmental good.
