Purposeful Leadership: Leadership for the Sustainability Transition
How can companies benefit from the sustainability transition, even without knowing how to get there? How much support do CEOs need from their board to create change? What does this mean for how investors need to facilitate Purposeful Leadership?
Amrop's Willem Ledeboer, Partner at Amrop The Netherlands and Global Practice Leader, Financial Services, offers a new perspective and leadership concept for Companies and CEOs in these times of global change and transformation towards sustainability.
Willem says, "The sustainability transition is becoming increasingly unavoidable. Beyond international and government efforts, it will take individuals but especially businesses to step up in order to ´move the needle´ on sustainability and ESG."
Moving the Needle
Driving the change will require authentic and Purposeful Leadership within companies, facilitated by investors, supervisory boards and the broader stakeholder community. Currently, there is a significant gap between the objectives of the sustainability transition, and the pathways on how to get there.
This gap needs to be filled by a new form of leadership which provides companies and executives with the relevant insights and effective tools to navigate these transformational times, and ultimately become financially stronger, more sustainable and successful, for a 'future-proof' business model fit for this fast-changing environment.
