What does growth look like when profit is secondary? What are the building blocks of a non-depleting economy? How can established businesses thrive in times of transition? In its new program, Trailblazers trains professionals to be their own guides in times of transition. With the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) around the corner, the new EU legislation starting in 2024, this is no luxury. To launch Trailblazers, Paul de Kuyper speaks with frontrunners and frontier explorers in search of the seeds of the new economy.
