edie kicks off a month of exclusive content dedicated to sustainable business leadership

Our ever-popular Business Leadership Month returns for 2024! It’s our biggest month of the year, centred around the edie Awards presentation ceremony on 6 March and flagship edie 24 conference on 20-21 March.

Between and beyond these events, we will be bringing readers an array of multimedia content focused on the thought leaders and changemakers in the world of corporate sustainability.

The month has started today (Friday 1 March) with an exclusive new op-ed from the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership’s chief executive Lindsay Hooper, who makes a rallying call for bold political leadership in this mega-election year.

We have more leaders’ op-eds lined up for the remainder of the month, alongside features, interviews, podcasts, downloadable resources, online events and our biggest face-to-face events of the year. Read on for a full run-down of what to expect.

Online event: The Sustainable Business Leadership Sessions

On Tuesday 5 March, the edie team is hosting three back-to-back live webinar sessions designed to help sustainability professionals shift gear and transform their organisations into corporate leaders. These sessions are free to attend.

The afternoon will cover three key topics, ranging from top-line strategy development for purpose-led, resilient businesses; to equipping staff with green skills; to collecting sustainability data and verifying climate targets.

We’re delighted to have guest speakers on-board from organisations including LinkedIn, ClimateVoice, the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi). Click here for a full agenda and to register.
