CEO Anne Marie Jess Hansen on Sustainable Leadership

Play an active role in solving our biggest shared challenges

Dear <<First Name>>,

A growing number of companies have begun the journey towards a more sustainable business. We see that companies that have embraced action on environmental, social, and governance issues are thriving and outpacing their competitors. Traditional corporate social responsibility no longer cuts it – Leaders must rethink what a business is and how it drives change in the world. The economics of business as usual will not favor them, society won’t accept them, and younger generations won’t work for them (Source: HBR: The Net Positive Manifesto)

With this newsletter we aim to showcase some of the great trends, cases, reads, masterclasses, programs & network activities that focus on different areas of Sustainable Leadership.

Both practically and morally, corporate leaders can no longer sit on the sidelines of major societal shifts or treat human and planetary issues as “someone else’s problem.” For their own good, they must play an active role in addressing our biggest shared challenges.
