Building back sustainably and the impact on leadership

September 16th, 11 am GMT+1

Watch the recording

Catch up on this 60-minute live session to explore:

  • The leadership role in helping rebuild a stronger, safer, and more prosperous society
  • What implications do Net-Zero, sustainability, and human rights have for your organization’s strategy
  • What implications this has for you and leaders across your organization
  • How to help to make a difference, find opportunities in your organization, and explore the capabilities that will be needed
  • In the run-up to CoP 26 UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, how do business leaders navigate a new future?

More and more organizations are putting net-zero, sustainability, and human rights at the heart of their strategies. They are recognizing that organizational purpose should be about producing solutions to the problems of people and the planet, and making a profit in the process, not profiting from producing those problems in the first place.

As we continue to face up major natural disasters and adjust to the world slowly re-opening again, how can we build back better? And what implications does this have for business leaders and leadership development?

Speaker: Matthew Gitsham, Director of the Ashridge Center for Business and Sustainability
