a changing landscape

With decarbonization efforts gaining momentum across all industries, businesses are facing new challenges and opportunities. While companies offering climate solutions have seen moderate growth in the past, recent trends suggest a significant shift in market dynamics. Increased demand, positive consumer sentiment, and supportive regulation have led to unprecedented growth expectations for climate solutions. However, many companies are struggling to adapt quickly enough to capitalize on this industrial transition. Unable to keep up, these companies become vulnerable in increasingly competitive markets. A business’ capacity to transform its products, adapt its market positioning, and adjust internal structures are more important than ever.
