Capgemini Invent Workshop
Explore how Capgemini Invent's workshop on Day 1 of Sustainability LIVE: Net Zero delved into climate adaptation & social sustainability for futureproofing

Facilitating an invite-only VIP workshop on the first day of the inaugural Sustainability LIVE: Net Zero — hosted by sister title Sustainability MagazineCapgemini Invent was joined by an intimate audience and hosted an interactive discussion on changing and adapting human systems to prepare for evolving climate risks and future proofing methods for not only businesses, but people, communities and countries. 

Joining the group for the hour-long session were the workshop’s three moderators, Capgemini Invent’s VP Sustainable Future Courtney Holm, Manogna Goparaju, Climate Adaptation and Sustainable Finance Lead Sustainable Futures and Juan Diaz Reina, Social Sustainability Lead Sustainable Futures. 

Capgemini's commitment to net zero

As one of Sustainability LIVE: Net Zero 2024’s proud sponsors — alongside the likes of Schneider Electric and Kearney — Holm emphasised that net zero is not an end goal but a continuous journey. 

This was shared with the workshop’s attendees, as they gathered in small groups to apply knowledge into practice. This involved applying a systems thinking approach to map out the consequences of climate hazards across a variety of sectors, including heat stress in manufacturing, drought in retail, and sea level rise in tourism.

Emphasising the human side of climate change, the Capgemini Invent executives further emphasised the shift from climate mitigation to adaptation throughout the workshop. Goparaju highlighted the growing vulnerabilities across various sectors and stressed the importance of future-proofing systems and people.

She and Reina then underscored the necessity of prioritising people and the planet in climate adaptation strategies, advocating for a systemic view of risk, considering its impact on businesses and individuals alike. By prioritising communities and individuals in climate adaptation strategies — also known as having a human-centric approach — allows for the fostering of participation, empowerment and compliance and, as the Capgemini leaders shared, integrated initiatives which in turn protect vulnerable populations and contribute to a just transition while respecting human rights.
