At UBS, we believe healthy economies, fair and equal human growth and a flourishing natural environment are all essential parts of a more sustainable future. One will not exist without the others. Take our natural world – some USD 58 trillion of economic value depends on nature^. But at the same time, our population is growing fast. By 2050, planet Earth could be home to 9.7 billion people^^, with two thirds of them living in cities^^^. How will we balance their needs and wants with those of the world around them? What will low-carbon communities and inclusive living spaces look like? These are just some of the challenges we need to tackle as we all transition towards a net-zero tomorrow. Join us to explore some of the real economy innovations and solutions.
