European Industry’s Post-Pandemic Gambit

European industries are reaching a critical inflection point as tomorrow’s enterprise leaders chase an industrial renaissance driven by sustainability and technology. With COVID-19 having accelerated the onset of a new paradigm for competitiveness and growth, aspiring winners emerging from the global pandemic face the prospect of having to complete a dual transformation at record speed. Not only do many need to rewire their business to emerge stronger and capture future growth, but some will also require a more profound transformation if they are to secure sustained growth over the long run. On the one hand, significant investment in game-changing digital technologies is a prerequisite to keeping pace in the new normal and reclaiming one’s place in a radically redefined marketplace. On the other hand, captains of industry must embrace sustainability if they are to maintain performance, attain brands with a purpose, and future proof their businesses. Recent studies suggest that European industries, mindful as they are of the environmental impacts of business, must hasten their digital and sustainability transitions, simultaneously and in an integrated way. Only then can they reach their full potential and regain competitiveness on the world stage. This webinar will explore how to do this and what a real blueprint for twin transformation looks like.
