Tomorrow’s business leaders need the skills and competencies to cope with an increasingly complex world as well as the social and environmental challenges across a changing competitive landscape. A sustainability perspective is critical to managing relationships, bringing about change and planning for the future.

The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) Future Leaders Team (FLT) program has been set up to identify the skills needed by the future leaders of member companies, and to provide a unique platform for them to develop and test these skills in a real-world setting. The FLT program is a unique professional and leadership development opportunity that aims to mold leaders for the future who understand sustainability challenges and can position these to make strategic decisions. It is designed to help upcoming business leaders grapple with the complex topics, issues and concepts that will influence their future, as well as the future of their organizations. In addition to opportunities for face-to-face interaction, the program creates a global network of dynamic business leaders, capable of acting as sustainable development ambassadors both within their companies and in society.

By taking part in the FLT program, participants support their company’s sustainability projects and initiatives, while contributing to the WBCSD’s objectives to act as a catalyst for change towards a sustainable future.
