Embracing change as an opportunity

The challenges from Covid-19 and our necessary transition to a low carbon economy call for a much keener sense of adaptability and new ways of working.

In a recent opinion piece published by the Milken Conference’s “Power of Ideas” essay collection, Jean-Yves Fillion, CEO of BNP Paribas USA, noted that more than ever, enabling new ways of collaborating and communicating will become compulsory for many industries. In little more than a year and a half, the ways we interface with clients and conduct business have clearly been altered, and while meeting in-person both with clients and colleagues remains invaluable, we are unlikely to see a return to the business travel intensity that was commonplace pre-COVID.

Innovation and perseverance are key to achieving net zero and a sustainable future.

Fillion also participated in a panel discussion at the 2021 Milken Institute Global Conference in Los Angeles on “Behind the Sustainability Curtain: ESG Data and Disclosures.”
