  4. By 2030, demand for food will rise by 50%, for energy by 45% and for water by 30%
  5. Women are too often excluded from economic opportunities
  6. The financial crisis was partly caused by market rules that encourage short-termism and do not reward sustainable investment
  7. The current economic model is "pushing us inexorably towards the limits of natural resources and planetary life support systems"
