Dear Analyst Relations colleagues –
Do you find yourself asking the question, “what’s it all about?” I do. I don’t think I’m the only one, but the experiences of these past couple of years have at times led me to a reflective state of mind. In so many ways, we have had to think about how we as individuals fit into our society and the greater world. Paradigms about our views of health, success, environment, and even major systems like our social and political order, have all come into question. More often, our discussions and thoughts are less about “me” and more about “we.”
In our sphere of IT and business services and products, perhaps it’s this reflection that has fueled a more intentional look at how we’re building our businesses and looking at how 2 + 2 can possibly equal more than four. Can we really be profitable and “do good” at the same time? Short answer – Yes! At Everest Group, we have doubled down to more intentionally build out a body of work that deeply explores and examines the uber-big topic of sustainability. This has involved developing frameworks for describing purpose-driven businesses, conducting primary research to show what is actually happening on the ground, identifying growing business opportunities, and engaging in meaningful conversations with those taking the lead on sustainability.

Best regards –
Vice President, Analyst Relations Engagement
