The Catalyst Special Report: The Year is 2021

Letter from the Editor

A new year brings new energy as we reflect on the past and turn our attention to the future – something many of us are eager to do. If there’s one thing we can count on each January to help, it’s an assortment of expert predictions about what to expect in the year to come.

Suffice it to say that few predicted what 2020 would bring, so instead of what might be, let’s focus on what can be, because that’s where solutions lie to the challenges we’re facing.

  • Experts predict that impact investing will continue to grow in popularity, but what if we could democratise the industry through the use of cryptocurrencies?

  • Experts predict further commitment by CEOs to corporate sustainability and inclusive growth, but what if companies actually integrated their commitments into their core business strategies?

  • Experts predict a renewed focus on climate change, but what if we established our standing forests as an asset class and designed investment vehicles to support an influx of capital?

  • It doesn’t take an expert to predict the Herculean effort required to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine, but what if we readied our supply chains and societies not only for this pandemic but the next?

The collective sigh of relief was palpable as the clock struck midnight and we began 2021. The challenges we faced in 2020 haven’t disappeared with the calendar year, but we feel ready to take them on with a renewed sense of hope and purpose.

The articles in this report lay out our Palladium experts’ hopes for building back better from an unprecedented year. If you find something in these pages that resonates with you, I welcome you to get in touch.

All the best,

Elizabeth Godo
