Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL)

Multi-stakeholder alliances

We participate in many processes and fora to build relationships with key stakeholders to help drive change for a sustainable economy. 

We work with major UK and European headquartered businesses, international insurers, banks and investors, policymakers, regulators and central banks. We are a founding partner of the We Mean Business Coalition and collaborate with a range of partners to drive business and policy transformation, including the European Climate Foundation (ECF), Breakthrough Energy and Climate Catalyst.


Participation in multistakeholder processes and fora 

We play a fundamental role within key sustainable business networks, including the We Mean Business Coalition, European Climate Foundation and Business For Nature.

We foster new national and international networks, such as UK Business Group Alliance for Net Zero and the European Green Growth Partnership. Our role as a knowledge partner to key initiatives and institutions such as the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures and African Natural Capital Alliance enables us to drive key sustainability agendas.

Our active involvement in key global fora, including the World Economic Forum and UN conferences in collaboration with Cambridge colleagues, enable us to use our institutional voice at key moments to drive change.


Using our institutional voice and influence 

We build relationships with key stakeholders (including government and media), sharing institutional positions and evidence-based narratives at key moments to inform public policy debates. We produce policy and business briefings at key EU & UK policy moments around the transition to a sustainable economy.              

We share our position and asks at key international moments such as the UNFCCC climate and biodiversity conferences. We have an open dialogue with NGOs and activist groups to ensure diverse perspectives are included in our work and the conversations we convene.
