WBCSD Leadership Program 2017
The focus for 2017 will be on “Integrating strategic sustainability into business decision making”.
During the program, we will seek to promote a better understanding of the importance of social and natural capital, in addition to financial capital, including opportunities and risks. We will explore how materiality and the valuation of externalities enable companies to focus their transparency efforts and leverage the value of sustainability reporting. To enrich the educational content, participants will be given access to academics and business leaders, investors and NGOs. Participants will learn about the scientific drivers of the sustainability agenda from leading scientists and professors. They will understand the socio-economic barriers and drivers that lead to poverty, conflict and abuses of human rights, and see from case studies what progressive leaders are doing to address such issues
In addition, participants will gain better understanding of their own leadership preferences to help them become sustainability leaders. All participants will work on individual and group projects: those will strongly emphasize solutions that can benefit both the participant’s organization and the wider business community. The final group projects will be presented during the WBCSD Council Meeting giving participants the opportunity to engage and interact with WBCSD Council Members and Liaison Delegates.
