Final few days for edie readers to take annual flagship leadership survey

The survey results will form the basis of a major new report which will be launched at edie’s Sustainability Leaders Forum on 4-5 February 2020

The 2020 Business Leadership Survey, developed in association with power company Ørsted, is your opportunity to tell us exactly what business leadership looks like for your organisation in the next 12 months.


The survey closes on 13th December 2020. All survey responses will remain anonymous and your details will not be shared without your express permission.

The survey, which takes 10-15 minutes to complete, digs deep into the drivers, challenges and opportunities surrounding sustainable business as we enter a new decade. Specifically, the survey shines a spotlight on the key issues of climate change, brexit, engagement and behaviour change, single-use plastics and the road to a net-zero carbon economy.

The survey is primarily aimed at sustainability, CSR, environmental, energy, and facilities managers as well as c-suite executives responsible for sustainability – including chief executives and board-level directors.

The survey results will form the basis of a major new report which will be launched at edie’s Sustainability Leaders Forum on 4-5 February 2020, where the results will also be presented and discussed with a selection of sustainable business leaders live on stage.

It will be the second annual report of its kind, following our 2019 survey results which can be viewed here. Those who took last year’s version of the survey are urged to take the 2020 edition, allowing us to identify trends and track progress over the past 12 months.
