Assessment

Our Framework to Select, Develop and Promote Sustainable Leaders

 



 

In order for CEOs and board members to effectively drive the transformation needed to integrate sustainability into business strategy and operations, they must embed it in the leadership culture of their organizations.

Yet our analysis shows that sustainability experience or mindset is a requirement in only 4 percent of non-executive and senior executive appointments today.

At the United Nations Global Compact’s Leaders Summit, Kurt Harrison, Consultant at Russell Reynolds Associates, outlines a framework for how to better select, develop and promote the next generation of leaders who will drive sustainability and business performance in support of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Kurt also sets out how organizations can assess sustainable leadership potential, identifying key indicators to watch out for when looking at executives’ track records, competencies and mindset and values. Kurt is joined by:

  • Cynthia Carroll, Non-Executive Director, BP, Formerly CEO of Anglo American
  • Hans Vestberg, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Verizon Communications
  • Lila Karbassi, Chief of Programmes, United Nations Global Compact
