Randall Krantz has worked with the Environment Team of the World Economic Forum for the past several years, currently leading the Sustainability Initiative. After helping build the foundations of the climate change initiative at the World Economic Forum, Randall has shifted to forging new ground exploring opportunities for business and business models in sustainable consumption. As head of Sustainability Initiative at the Forum, Randall works with business leaders and experts to explore the transformational changes required for dematerialised business models, shifting from products to services, and innovating on the production side to decouple consumption of energy and natural resources from environmental degradation. Randall is interested in exploring how public-private partnerships can offer entrepreneurial solutions to global environmental issues, and how well-designed and innovative business strategies can create positive change through good business choices.
