"Profiting Society: Leading into a Sustainable Future."

Business Night 2017

Sustainability extends to three interdependent levels: environmental, social and economic. The notion of sustainable leadership encompasses this triple bottom line concept. Sustainable leadership implies a deep understanding of our society and of its interconnected systems. Being a leader who thinks globally requires a future-oriented mindset. We strive to think globally and act locally as a first step to a better society.
