Sustainability and Retail

In the retail sector, sustainability is becoming one of the most important issues for consumers and corporations alike. Whether it is new or used items, reduced impact packaging, or traceability of origins, consumers worldwide are increasingly aware of the impact of their lifestyles and shopping habits on the planet. They expect companies to demonstrate support for social and environmental matters and are putting their money where their values are. On the corporate side, retail companies are making sustainability and ESG a core value of their future business and growth.

The Automotive Industry moves to sustainability

Automotive companies are increasingly prioritising sustainability in their production and business processes. In 2020, the automotive industry produced over 3,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide which accounted for roughly half of the total emissions produced by the transport industry. New technologies and processes aimed at decarbonising both the production process and the vehicles themselves are attempting to decrease this figure and create a truly sustainable mobility industry.

Key Takeaways from

the Axis Tel Aviv 2020


Anita Levor

February 2020

The event began with Ibex Investors Founder and CIO Justin Borus’s keynote presentation, “Get Funded Now: What VCs are really looking for in Start-Ups”, where he emphasized the need for realistic expectations and building credibility.  Start-Ups need to be priced to sell, with realistic projections and justification of the amount they seek to raise by presenting milestones they expect to reach with it.  Individuals must be coachable, open to advice and questions, shouldn’t “have all the answers”, and need to acknowledge the risks and concerns.
