FT Rethink

Transitioning from a WILD to a CLIC™ Economy

Our current economic model is wasteful, idle, lopsided and dirty. It is WILD. But we believe a transition is underway to a circular, lean, inclusive and clean economic model. We call it CLIC™. By investing in low-carbon and clean-tech innovation, as well as in carbon-intensive companies that are transitioning to net-zero, we can pave the way to a better future. A future that focuses on a triple bottom line: planet, people and profit.
