Climate change, rapid urbanisation and disruptive technologies are creating an uncertain future. Trillions of dollars of global investment is being made available to respond to these challenges, but how wisely will this money be spent?
A major change in thinking is needed to ensure that the full potential value of this investment can be realised. ‘Total Value’ assesses and quantifies a wider range of benefits than traditional methods, creating opportunities for more innovative solutions, new business models and collaborations.
To implement sustainable investment decisions it is essential that the world can deliver social and natural benefits alongside economic and financial value. This paper challenges conventional thinking and shows that through a Total Value approach we can close the value gap and drive change at scale.
