Our executive education program brings together the thinkers and doers to identify, understand and creatively respond to the major challenges facing leaders and organisations in sustainable development.

Our program varies from half-day workshops to long-term partnerships around a specific agenda, with content that covers detailed technical training, exploratory visioning, strategic agenda setting and leadership development.

Our core strength is our genuine interdisciplinary approach to the social, environmental and economic dimensions of sustainable development, as reflected by the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Our programs

Climate change and business risk

Climate change is one of the defining challenges of our generation. The Paris Agreement of 2015 commits every country to keeping average global warming well below 2°C with efforts to limit temperature increase to 1.5°C — a commitment that will significantly alter the operating environment for organisations. Businesses are also increasingly realising that climate change is a financial and strategic issue. Most organisations, however, have not yet integrated climate into their core strategies.
