edie will update the site with more information in due course

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.

The stakes could not be higher. As COP26 highlighted, we must all play our part in keeping 1.5°C alive, and that means making bold, transformational decisions to shift organisational models and evolve entire industries – whether by curbing emissions, protecting our natural resources or fighting poverty and discrimination,” edie’s content director Luke Nicholls said.

“edie’s Business Leadership Month is dedicated to empowering, connecting and celebrating the individuals and teams who are spearheading that business transformation. Running throughout March 2022, the month is centred around the flagship Sustainability Leaders Forum (8-9 March) and the Sustainability Leaders Awards (30 March), supplemented by a plethora of leadership-themed articles, surveys, reports, webinars and podcasts. The time to transform starts now.”


1) Sustainability Leaders Forum (08-09 March)
