In addition, Germán Granada, general director of Forética and secretary of the Secretariat Council of the Spanish Business Council for Sustainability, pointed out that “Sustainability has overcome the crisis caused by covid-19, and has been reinforced. However, 2022 has brought new preoccupations that have been analyzed in the ESG Forum, such as the geopolitical crisis, the climate emergency, the increase of inequality, or the loss of biodiversity... that will impact the future development of the new sustainable development agenda. At Forética, we believe that sustainability has overcome a no-return point and this is the best moment to enforce new challenges.
