So you think sustainability is boring? It must be said, many companies are content to simply churn out bland facts about the social and environmental impact of their actions.
However, for sustainability to be truly effective, it needs storytelling. Storytelling that actually moves people.
If you want to change the world for the better and ignite your company’s role in this process, you need an engaging narrative. Sustainability leadership revolves around mobilizing your internal and external stakeholders for your mission and providing a clear pathway for them to contribute to it.
Sustainability leaders are reinventing the way business can be part of the solutions for a better world.
For the first time our ‘Corporate Responsibility’ and ‘Leadership’ Expertise Centers are jointly organizing a CSR Vitamins session in a new format. On November 10th, renowned speaker and Futerra co-founder Ed Gillespie will give an inspiring session on this topic that will both show you how leaders are engaging with sustainability storytelling and what their recipe for success is.
You will receive an invitation shortly but be sure to save the date in your calendar now!
