It takes 15 minutes to complete and gives you a personal Sustainable Leadership Score, plus practical guidance on how you can build your sustainability muscles.

The good news is that sustainable leaders aren’t just born. They are also made.

At Russell Reynolds Associates, we believe that sustainability success is within the reach of every business executive—and we are determined to increase the number of sustainable leaders in the world from hundreds to thousands, for the good of business, the economy, and the planet.

The Sustainable Leadership Index is just one way we plan to do that.
