“A lot of organisations have been thinking about sustainability in terms of their impact on the planet; far fewer have been thinking about the dependencies. One of the lessons of the COVID-19 crisis is that we’re dependent on a lot more things than we thought we were. Businesses that want to be resilient and want to survive into the future need to figure out what the critical factors that they depend on are, and then need to think about how they can take more control over those factors.”

Paul Holland, Grant Thornton
