We will question that: (1) there is virtually no business model that does not transfer the costs of sustainability to external stakeholders; (2) there is an ongoing sustainability bubble where stock returns of sustainability are driven by demand and not change in company behavior; and (3) at the macro level, sustainability will be useless if not extremely costly.
