Turning Utilities' Purpose into Outcomes for People, Prosperity, and the Planet

Coverage: Europe

Utilities are key to the resilience of the global economy

Energy transition, climate disruptions, and social sustainability are clearly demonstrating that utilities are key to the resilience of the global economy. Utilities' purpose in fact creates positive outcomes not only for the sector but for the entire economy's resilience.​
Utilities need to center their strategy on people, prosperity, and the planet, while mastering their day-by-day execution. These elements combined will make utilities more trustworthy with customers, employees, suppliers, shareholders, and society.
