Competence for Strategic Sustainable Business

August 26, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Competence for Strategic Sustainable Business

The most senior leaders of the organization — the board, the CEO and their executive team — are ultimately responsible for the success or failure of the organization. They alone are uniquely positioned to drive the transformation needed by integrating sustainability into business strategy and operations in a manner that supports the long-term viability of the business.

Sustainability pioneers have a strong personal motivation and purpose. They combine a sustainable mindset with a differentiated set of capabilities that have enabled them to drive transformation within and beyond their own four walls. In a research by UN Global Compact and Russel Reynolds they identified capabilities as Multi-level System Thinking, Stakeholder Inclusion, Disruptive Innovation, and Long-Term Activation.

Based on both research insights and personal experiences, we will listen to Lise Kingo, NED Sanofi, former CEO at UN Global Compact and Executive Vice President, Chief of Staff, Novo Nordisk A/S sharing insights on the status of competence at boards and leadership teams, and what is needed to move forward.

A moderated discussion will follow with Lise Kingo, Chair and NED Arne Karlsson and Professor Mette Morsing.
