During our Executive Summit in Cannes a group of inspiring thought leaders offered their insights on the theme of “Scarcity in Abundance.” We have captured the highlights from these top sessions to bring their valuable perspectives to you.

This week, we feature Cyril Garcia’s story about Capgemini’s Sustainability Vision.


Garcia is the Head of Global Sustainability Services and Corporate Responsibility at Capgemini Group, and a member of the Group Executive Board. With more than 25 years of experience in consulting across industries, Cyril has been at the forefront of the development of new services for Capgemini Group and its clients. He joined Capgemini in 1993 and led numerous transformation projects, then held the positions of Director of Group Strategy, Capgemini Consulting France and Spain, and CEO of Capgemini Consulting.

In 2018, he launched the new Capgemini Invent brand and the “Invent for Society” initiative embracing society-driven projects delivering positive impact. Cyril Garcia was appointed Global Sustainability Services and Corporate Responsibility Head in early 2023. He is responsible for the integration of sustainability across Capgemini’s portfolio of client services, notably around sustainable enterprise transformation and climate tech. Cyril is also driving the Group’s own sustainability agenda and its Corporate Social Responsibility activities. Cyril has been a member of the Group Executive Board since 2018.



After more than a decade of abundance, where the economy was steadily expanding, money was free, globalization was progressing, geo-politics were as boring as they should be and life was generally good, the world has taken a decisive turn towards a different future. Scarcity has re-emerged as an urgent priority on the executive agenda. Suddenly we find ourselves in a perma-crisis, where all certainties seem to have disappeared.

There is a steady flow of new, potentially transformative, ready to scale, technologies like Generative Artificial Intelligence, Synthetic biology, Quantum Computing, and Virtual and Augmented Reality, that promise solutions to all our challenges. Yet in a world where scarcity is in abundance, we must think carefully about the choices we make, including the technologies our businesses use.

During our Sogeti Executive Summit we aimed to develop an optimistic scenario, minted by one of the speakers as “The Great Progression”, to write the future you want and explore some of the technologies that will help you get there.

In this 24-hour intense program, perspectives from many different angles were presented by authoritative speakers, interspersed with discussion amongst the invited executives. We look back at two exhilarating days.
