Alan Knight: Rethinking Corporate Sustainability – If Only We Ran the Planet Like a Shop!
March 2013 - A can-do, positive narrative on sustainable development. This narrative might come across as simplistic, but it is well-informed through real-life experiences and contrasts. It draws on the combined emotional and technical intelligence developed by being confronted with: a child making brass door handles in squalor in India; the memory of another child’s face when the toy they dreamed for was out of stock; the sight of a beautifully laid-out garden centre ready for the Easter rush; the destruction of a tropical forest that supplied the timber for the garden benches or seeing an overweight child enjoying a second burger for lunch in the UK. Its purpose is to build first-hand experiences through humour, metaphors, and clarity to help business leaders and others value and embrace the sustainability challenge.

Effective regulation for mutual and co-operative insurers can help protect human rights against natural hazards
May 2015 – Effective insurance regulation promotes financial inclusion and supports people’s basic rights of life, livelihood and shelter.
