Context: informe UNESCO cap a una societat sostenible

Rau en una important història de polítiques centrades en la innovació com a la clau del progrés mediambiental i una economia sostenible???

In parallel with the business world’s new environmental focus lies an important policy story centered on innovation as the key to environmental progress and a sustainable economy. A fundamentally changed environmental trajectory requires substantial technological breakthroughs.

Sí, "el tema de les polítiques" cau un pèl lluny de "policy story", però jo entenc que vol dir això. Segurament hi ha maneres més boniques de traduir-ho però jo en tot cas la buscaria partint del sentit, i no de la formulació de l'original.

agree  Berni Armstrong: Poor Bernadette. There is far too much of this nonsense in modern business jargon. I agree with Maria extract the meaning from it and translate that, not the fashionable waffle.
