PurposeThe Resources industry is facing an era of severe disruption. The energy transition and sustainability targets are driving a re-thinking of traditional business models, with innovation and digital driving further change acceleration. Therefore, we see utilities, energy and chemical companies starting to reconsider their traditional roles and to start to play in a more and more converging market. This raises questions as: “What will the future of the organization look like?”, “How to successfully pivot into this new reality?” and “In what way will our company serve our future generations?”. The purpose is often a key part of our client discussions. As their role in society has been clear and stable in the past, the new dynamics of the energy transition gives both challenges and opportunities. “What is our role in society?” and “How can we deliver sustainable growth?”. Companies are seeking for ways to define positive impacts for society. Besides, they want to ensure a long-term prosperous future for the company.
