Global Supply Chains
The Complicated Road Back to "Normal". It feels that the pandemic has made changes to just about everything in daily life. Not only have our routines changed, but we have also been put on a steep learning curve of new concepts.


Global Carbon Credits Ready for Take-Off
The market for carbon credits has grown steadily in recent years. Now it looks poised for a period of rapid expansion as companies embrace carbon offsetting in huge numbers. A new report by Citi’s Francesco Martoccia takes a deeper look at the market’s fundamentals and potential.

Education - Learning for Life
The topic of the skills gap and how it is addressed is of critical importance, especially in the current environment where tightness in the labor market, coupled with the ever-present threats posed by automation, are having real world impacts on lives around the world. Although a lot of stakeholders are impacted by this phenomenon, the focus of this report is on the role played by enterprises — i.e., large companies — in identifying the skills of the future and equipping their employees with the tools they need to survive and thrive in a world beset by change.

Sustainable Tipping Points: The Net Zero Club
Many businesses have promised to reduce their greenhouse-gas emissions to net zero, but the promises with the most impact include not just a business's own activities but also those of its entire supply and distribution network. When suppliers lack their own net zero targets, a company faces tough choices: offset those emissions, or look for a new arrangement. As more businesses make these decisions, we're beginning to see the creation of a net zero club. Members of this club are likely to be seen as part of the climate-change solution, while those on the outside risk being viewed as part of the problem. Jason Channell, Head of Sustainable Finance at Citi Global Insights, guides us through these and other topics from his report Sustainable Tipping Points: The ‘net zero club’—when sustainability meets margins & supply chains.


China’s Production Play
The resilience of China’s industrial system and supply chains has been on full display through the pandemic, arresting the move of supply out of China that was gathering pace before coronavirus hit. A new report from Citi Research’s Xiaowen Jin suggests that strength could endure, not least because of the huge cost of rebuilding battered supply chains elsewhere.


Home of the Future
One of the largest carbon-emitting industries is the building sector. Building construction and operations accounted for 39% of global CO2 emissions in 2017, with operational carbon (i.e., the amount of carbon emitted during the daily use and maintenance of a home) accounting for 28% of total CO2 emissions. As we look for ways to decarbonize the planet, what if we could build a net zero emissions home?


Global Carbon Markets- Solving the emissions crisis before time runs out
The focus on emissions and climate change is likely to reach new heights this November with the advent of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow. But while we might all be aware of the big picture, the rise of “net zero,” and the many climate acronyms popping up daily, do we really know where we are now, what the current plans in place — if delivered upon — would achieve, and what the plan to get to net zero actually is?


Philanthropy and the Global Economy
Philanthropy, and within it the broad impact of foundations, charities, and the voluntary sector, are important but not widely understood contributors to the global economy.
