Time to Transform: edie kicks off Business Leadership month of content and events

March is edie's Business Leadership month of content

Under the banner of “Time to Transform, March 2022 will act as edie’s Business Leadership month, with the editorial team primed to deliver an array of thought-provoking content across all mediums, tapping into the sustainability movement.

With the Sustainability Leaders Forum and Awards (scroll down for more information) moved to March to allow for in-person events, edie is transforming its website into a month-long content focus on the topic of business leadership.

For the first few weeks of March, keep up to date with everything that falls under leadership with edie’s Business Leadership Live Blog.

While the live blog populates why not take a look at edie’s first few bits of exclusive Leadership content. First up, edie looks at business leadership through the lens of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s latest climate warnings. In this piece, we explore five ways businesses can respond to the IPCC’s ‘atlas of human suffering’.

Given the findings of that report, edie’s content editor Matt Mace outlines how the world needs a new type of corporate climate leader in his latest blog. Read the opinion piece here.

There’s also an exclusive interview with UN goodwill ambassador and climate activist Aliza Ayaz, who gives her thoughts on how nations and businesses can show true climate leadership, arguing that keeping promises and taking an equity-first approach is key to building trust and momentum.
