University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership

CISL brings together business, government and academia to find solutions to critical sustainability challenges. Capitalising on the world-class, multidisciplinary strengths of the University of Cambridge, CISL deepens leaders' insight and understanding through its executive programmes, builds deep, strategic engagement with leadership companies, and creates opportunities for collaborative enquiry and action through its business platforms.

Over 25 years, we have developed a leadership network with more than 5,000 alumni from leading global organisations and an expert team of Fellows, Senior Associates and staff.

Our graduate study courses are widely regarded as some of the best internationally. Individuals enhance their ability to lead and influence change for sustainability, whilst also gaining an academic award.

The strength of our Master's-level programmes in sustainable business lies in the combination of academic rigour as an accredited University programme, with an emphasis on practical application and action.

With access to cutting-edge interdisciplinary thinking on sustainability from leading Cambridge academics and other thought-leaders, the aim is to build the capacity of professionals to bring about positive change for sustainability within their organisations.
