The Prince of Wales's Business & Sustainability Programme

For over 20 years, our leadership seminars have helped over 2,500 senior executives respond strategically to sustainability challenges.

Leading companies and investors accept the end of ‘business as usual’

Growing demand for limited resources, changing socio-economic conditions and climate instability are creating unmet challenges and new opportunities. But with forward thinking, new business models and new types of leadership, many companies are seeing the commercial benefits of a sustainable business.

Three decades of shaping business leadership for sustainability

The Business & Sustainability Programme (BSP) prepares senior executives for this new context by helping them translate complex sustainability trends into business implications and decisions. The three-day residential seminars discuss the key challenges, risks, opportunities, and the tools to respond in a practical way.

Leading companies including Astra Zeneca, Kingfisher, Nestlé, IKEA, Skanska, Tetra Pak and Unilever, as well as government agencies and development banks, use the programme to provide strategic context and support the leadership development of senior staff. Each seminar accepts delegates from a range of geographies, functions and industries, to create a rich exchange and to build diverse, international peer networks.
