Leadership program

Our Leadership Program is designed to help leaders navigate complex, interdisciplinary topics that will determine the future of the individual and their organization.

The highly interactive program uses a mixture of education styles, ranging from traditional classroom-based work to action and experiential learning through workshop participation, involvement with our members, and management of individual and group projects. To enrich the educational content, participants are given access to academics and business leaders, sustainable development experts and key stakeholders.

WBCSD Leadership Program 2019

In partnership with Yale University, the 2019 program will focus on the challenges associated with leading change alongside the opportunities for business.

It will explore how materiality and the valuation of externalities enables companies to focus their transparency efforts and leverage the value of sustainability reporting. It will also discuss how to improve decision-making; the challenges of communicating to stakeholders and the importance of ethics.
