Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership

Lindsay leads the Institute’s Education team which support major organisations and individual leaders internationally to build the capability to create the future we want, aligning commercial performance with the delivery of positive outcomes for society. This spans strategic engagements with major companies to integrate sustainability into business strategy and operations, customised education programmes to build leadership capability, international executive and practitioner seminars, and growing portfolios of graduate and online programmes to challenge, inform and support individuals to lead change.

Lindsay speaks on global trends and the commercial implications for business, the relationship between business and society, and the leadership we need for the future we want. She has authored a number of CISL reports including ‘Rewiring Leadership’ and ‘Business, Justice and the New Global Economy’. Lindsay is a member of the Institute’s Executive Board and, alongside Earth on Board, leads CISL’s work to inform and engage Board Directors.


Over 15 years at the leading edge of business and sustainability, Lindsay has led significant growth and innovation in the Institute’s education and advisory services, including expansion into new international markets as well as development of new products and services to support businesses to embed sustainability across the organisation and to be effective in supporting a transition to a sustainable economy.  She personally leads client engagements across financial services, extractives and manufacturing sectors, as well as with major municipalities and SOEs in China and the Middle East

Prior to CISL, Lindsay worked in economic consultancy and served as Director of Studies in a financial services think tank, Centre for the Study of Financial Innovation.
