Sustainability Leadership Programme

Our Sustainability Leadership Programme has been developed specifically for senior business leaders and managers, with accountability for sustainability outcomes and leadership.

Today’s business leaders need a very different skillset to push the boundaries of sustainability to drive high levels of performance, productivity and value creation amid increasing complexity and uncertainty. This requires transformational strategic thinking, creativity, innovation and personal resilience. They will also need to shape cross-sectoral collaborations at a scale never seen before, and at times involving cooperation amongst competitors.

The Sustainability Leadership programme will help deliver some of these critical skills and thinking that businesses need to navigate these complex issues and to mobilise collaborative action to drive systemic change.

2020 programme

The 2020 programme is now complete.

In a significant development in SBC’s partnership with Catapult, the 2020 programme was open to non-SBC members as well as SBC members. This presented a significant opportunity for key stakeholders to work together to make progress on real sustainability challenges. The programme aimed to give participants and their organisations new skills and thinking that will help them navigate complex environmental and social issues, like climate change, the Sustainable Development Goals and the Future of Work.

Participants had the opportunity to share their experiences and learnings with a cohort of other leading change agents from across SBC’s membership, and to test and develop their ideas with experienced, peers as well as apply new skills, ideas and learnings to live projects.
