Sustainable Business & Responsible Leadership

Issue 31

An increasingly loud drumbeat we are hearing on corporate leadership is the role of responsible leadership and sustainable business. UBC Sauder, the Vancouver-based business school is at the forefront of both research and ‘walking the talk’ on these topics, as our article and interview make clear. Also in this issue, Matt Gitsham, Director of the Ashridge Centre for Business and Sustainability, expands on how CEOs in particularly are being both driven and driving themselves to lead their businesses to more sustainable processes, not just out of altruism but as good business sense too. This is a conversation we will return to frequently – as it is clearly, like digital – just the beginning of a new set of journeys.
