Economic growth is something that is important to every global citizen today.

But it’s not something to necessarily take for granted – we are certainly not “owed” long-term growth. We must earn it. And above all, we must continue innovating to become more efficient.

Simultaneously, society must collectively address the major issues that we’re inevitably set to face within this century if we wish to ensure that future generations live better than their predecessors.
