Sustainability Leadership for a Sustainable Future

NOVEMBER 05, 2020


The COVID-19 pandemic has accentuated the complexities we face when there is a shock to our global system. We have seen how quickly and dramatically we can change our behavior under pressure, and we have also seen the role that company leaders can play – and will increasingly be required to perform in the future.

One of these roles is in sustainability leadership which calls for a clear understanding of commercial implications while at the same time focusing on environmental and societal impacts of the business. This kind of leadership will help the organization with building resilience, championing innovation, promoting inclusion and engagement, and driving forward a ‘future fit’ business and sustainable future.

Key learnings the audience will take-away:

  • Identify the growing dimensions of sustainability on business
  • Determine the impact that this growing dimension has had on sustainability leadership
  • Understand the current developments and possible evolutions at the executive and non-executive level
