As current crises continue to painfully expose persisting challenges in our societies and economies, it is has become increasingly clear that there is an urgent need for a new type of business leader—one who makes the long-term sustainability of our world a top strategic priority.
Against this backdrop, Russell Reynolds Associates partnered with the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) to answer an important question: How can organizations make sustainability core to the DNA of their leadership teams?
Our joint research paper, Leadership for the Decade of Action, was officially unveiled by Clarke Murphy, CEO of Russell Reynolds Associates, at the UNGC’s Virtual Leaders Summit. He sets out:
- Why sustainability has emerged as a defining issue of our time.
- How CEOs and board leaders today are embracing the sustainability agenda.
- The five characteristics that differentiate sustainable business leaders.
- How to empower a new generation of leaders that embody the right set of values to transform our world.
