How is your company engaging with sustainability?

More and more is being asked of business leaders as they craft their visions of the future and develop strategies to implement them sustainably. They will need to make difficult choices for their organizations as sustainability expectations continue to tighten. As one of our MBA students wrote, Today, “leading for sustainability is business leadership.”

To help ensure that your organization is properly identifying its own unique sustainability challenges and cultivating leaders with the capacities needed to overcome these, Hitotsubashi ICS is proud to present the Leading For Sustainability Forum.

Leadership and Sustainability - as a leadership development specialist, I am drawn to the global sustainability challenge: arguably, it is the most consequential leadership challenge of our time. As we at Hitotsubashi ICS educate and develop the next generation of business leaders, I perceive that Leadership and Sustainability share important features: Both are evolutionary journeys that require intentionality and commitment.
