Climate Transition Catalysts
It is widely recognised that the transition to a low carbon economy is a technical challenge which demands the development of new tools and technologies.
It is less widely acknowledged to be an ‘adaptive challenge’ which requires the development of new organisational mindsets, dispositions, and ways of working.
Urgentem is a DDFO (Deliberately Developmental Financial Organisation), which means that we give equal strategic priority to both sets of challenges: the technical and the adaptive.
As a DDFO, we are an incubator of our people’s capabilities. Our culture, in its daily operations, is an accelerator of their emotional intelligence, judgement, and experience.
We approach the design and development of our company’s cultural operating system with the same transparent, collaborative and science-aligned mindset that we apply to the development of our technical and advisory tools.
As an organisation, we actively seek to stay open to the uncertainty, volatility, ambiguity and complexity of the unfolding climate emergency by cultivating compassion, empathy and emotional intelligence, all in a spirit of hope, courage, invention and play.
