How to Become a Sustainable Leader

 



At the Economist’s Sustainability Virtual Week, Clarke Murphy, chief executive of Russell Reynolds Associates, sets out the five traits CEOs and boards will need to make progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.  

How can CEOs and boards lead their organizations towards a more sustainable and profitable future? What skills do leaders need to make a measurable impact on sustainability? What values should they embody and what career experiences set them up for success? 

Clarke Murphy, chief executive of Russell Reynolds Associates, draws on research carried out in partnership with the United Nations Global Compact to outline a blueprint for sustainable leadership. He identifies the characteristics that allow business leaders to think for the long-term, make bold decisions and deliver lasting value for all stakeholders.
