Over 90 percent of business leaders report that sustainability is critical to the future success of their business
Sustainability will define growth and innovation in the next decades. In 2015, world leaders settled on a new set of global Sustainable Development Goals. The challenges are immense. Creating jobs, sustaining growth and eradicating poverty in a carbon-constrained world demands a restructuring of energy systems and a deeper appreciation of the boundaries of our ecological systems.
Stakeholders can therefore not continue to operate business-as-usual. The incorporation of social and environmental stewardship and ethics into organizational practices will now be the key determinant of long-term growth and competitive advantage. Organizations that understand this new trajectory are the ones that will dominate their sectors in the near future.
To operate in this significant paradigm shift of organizational sustainability requires new leadership thinking. It requires leaders who understand and seize the challenges and opportunities of sustainable development and what this means for their business’ success if they are to thrive for the long term.
In response to this context, the Strathmore Business School in Strathmore University has developed the African Sustainability Leadership (ASL) program. The program aims to build the capacity of executives to implement and turn sustainability initiatives in their organization into drivers of measurable value. By design, the program builds and adds value to the participants’ areas of expertise across all disciplines to enable them to become sustainability champions in their field.
