In this thought leadership article, "The Masked Climate Crisis Bandit," Meryl Sukumar, Founder, Subcinctus Consulting, and a recipient of The SustainabilityX® Magazine Global 50 Women In Sustainability Awards™ 2023 explores the parallels between the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing Climate Crisis, illustrating how the pandemic has served as a microdose of the extensive disruptions a full-blown Climate Emergency could unleash. Highlighting the similarities in supply chain disruptions, scarcity of materials, and the widespread societal impact, the article emphasizes the pandemic as a sneak peek into a future exacerbated by climate change. It argues that the gradual yet steady infiltration of climate emergencies into our lives mimics the unexpected surge of the pandemic, underscoring an urgent need for adaptive strategies and sustainable practices. The narrative stresses the importance of taking individual accountability, responding proactively rather than reactively, and embracing sustainable choices to mitigate climate change impacts. It also highlights the role of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) principles and reporting as crucial tools for businesses to navigate the crisis, encouraging a shift towards resilience, sustainability, and long-term value creation.
