“Purpose-driven growth companies from Finland do have some definite assets for the world. However, the meaning of “purpose-driven” must be used in a deeper sense, for societal and planetary effects. It is amazing how few growth companies have innovations for the global biodiversity loss, though this is arguably the most crucial planetary challenge for the future. This will change dramatically in the next 2-5 years – are we ready for that?”
At SHIFT Pekka will be participating in a fireside chat about sustainability and digitalization.
