Luke Wilde, Managing Partner and Founder of twentyfifty, reflects on the challenges ahead…

I’ve worked for two decades with businesses, helping them address a wide variety of human rights and corporate responsibility issues.  Like many leaders, as the pandemic took hold, my colleagues at twentyfifty and I found ourselves wondering: “what next?”.

Looking towards the year 2050, we see the climate emergency, big technological advances, and multiple social challenges ahead.  The task to build a more equitable and inclusive world seems enormous and this could well prove to be the era of history that we face the greatest and fastest adaptations to our lives and livelihoods ever.

Leading businesses through these times will require a social intelligence and capacity to adapt as never before and we are exceptionally well placed to do that.  With our multi-disciplinary team combining human rights knowledge with organisation change expertise, plus years of practical experience implementing human rights due diligence within large multinationals, we are ready to support companies to adapt and thrive in the years ahead.

So, we have invested in refreshing our website and brand identity, and feel excited about the powerful contribution we can make to the transition: From social risk to sustainable business.
