Overview

WBCSD Leadership Program

Tomorrow’s business leaders need a diverse set of skills and competencies to cope with an increasingly complex world. This includes an ever growing focus on a wider range of social and environmental challenges across a changing competitive and regulatory landscape.

The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) Leadership Program - formerly known as Future Leaders Team Program- is aiming to provide current and future business leaders with an in-depth understanding of sustainability challenges and opportunities that will feed into their strategic decision-making. It is designed to help leaders in navigating the often complex interdisciplinary topics and concepts that will influence their future, as well as the one of their organizations.

Participants of the WBCSD's  Program 2013 explain in their own words the value of the program, which aims to mentor business leaders for the future who understand sustainability challenges and can position these to make strategic sustainable decisions for businesses and the planet.

WBCSD Leadership Program 2016

Research demonstrates that businesses that are aware and act upon their impacts and dependencies with the environment and what has become known as human and social capital, are more successful. It is therefore critical for current and future leaders to understand the importance of sustainability for their businesses. In 2016, the program will allow participants to focus, on one of two specialist streams:

Stream A - Strategy, Innovation and Finance for Sustainable Development This stream will allow the participants to understand how some of the more progressive companies use innovation to develop value creating solutions that address sustainability issues through panel discussions, onsite visits and practical workshops with business leaders, government officials, engineering professional and financiers.

Stream B: Integrating Human and Social Capital for Value Creation This stream will introduce participants to the importance of these capitals in value creation and how companies are integrating human and social capital into core business strategy and day to day decision making. The steam will examine trends in policy and best practice in an increasing complexity and global market place with a focus on one of the world’s largest emerging markets.
