Sustainability has become a mainstream concern for business. The time for voluntary attention is over, the compliance pressure is on, and the focus is now firmly on “walking the sustainability talk”. New regulatory frameworks (such as the CSRD or EU Supply Chain Act) demand that business leaders now ask for practical guidance and tools to help them move from sustainability strategy design to implementation and reporting.
Beyond the desire for tools to create and shape sustainable business models also looms the challenge of leading internal and external stakeholders through the changes that a committment to sustainability demands. Applying futures literacy methods is one way of navigating the various seas of uncertainty and complexity in the sustainability debate and rethink business models of our time.
Join us on July 7 at 13:00 CET at the online webinar "Walking the Sustainability Talk" to get a better understanding of these matters and more information on what will be covered in the IEDC seminar "Implementing Sustainability Strategy" in September.
