Business Leadership Month Action Session

Taking place on Wednesday 29 March, this 60-minute webinar will exclusively reveal the results of our annual survey of sustainability leaders, with analysis and insights from a selection of sustainability and climate experts to understand what’s shaping corporate climate action in 2023.

The so-called polycrisis of runaway climate change, surging energy prices, deadly geopolitical conflict and rampant inequality is devastating the planet and costing a fortune. It’s clear that businesses across all sectors need effective sustainability leadership through crisis – but what, exactly, does that leadership look like?

This webinar explores what true leadership now looks like across all areas of sustainable development. The one-hour session draws on the results from edie’s 2023 Sustainable Business Leadership survey. Registrants for this online event will get access to all sessions on the day. The registration page will go live later this week.

The Business Leadership Report

Marking the culmination of edie’s Business Leadership Month, the Business Leadership Report will provide a summary of the key content and events that took place within the month – giving readers an end-to-end overview of the current state of sustainability leadership in the UK.

It will also feature the in-depth results of the 2023 Sustainable Business Leadership Survey, exploring the biggest drivers, challenges and opportunities facing corporate sustainability and climate action in 2023.

Celebrating sustainability leadership at the edie Awards
