Programme overview

For over 20 years, The Prince of Wales’s Business & Sustainability Programme (BSP) has helped over 2,500 senior executives translate complex sustainability trends into strategic business decisions, supporting individual leadership, business strategy and systemic change.

Building on the Sustainable Development Goals and Paris Agreement on climate change, the seminar will explore economic, social and political developments affecting business. Join leading experts to discuss how sustainability issues are shaping regulation, markets and supply chain and how your organisation can manage this changing context.

Influencing over 2,500 leaders from 1,000 organisations in 75 countries

Each seminar involves a senior delegation drawn from a range of functions and sectors, with all delegates selected on the basis of their seniority and sphere of influence and responsibility for decision-making, thereby ensuring a strong peer network.

The learning approach is based on a journey from challenge to opportunity, facilitated by the knowledge provided by our expert faculty of practitioners and academics. In Chile, the faculty team will be led by an international team from CISL’s extensive Fellow and Senior Associate network and academic experts from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.

Learn more about our exceptional Fellows and Senior Associates.


How do we deal with participants from the same industry?

The seminars provide a safe space for delegates to share and co-explore challenges and ideas relating to their personal and professional context. All discussions are treated as confidential and are conducted under the Chatham House Rule. For some of the more sensitive conversations, attendees from competing organisations are allocated to different syndicate groups, however, there is nothing to prevent these individuals engaging in active debate and sharing of ideas – in our experience, delegates appreciate the opportunity to interact with their peers on a shared sustainability agenda.

Access cutting-edge research and engage with a global network

The programme gives senior executives the knowledge, confidence and commitment to lead change at an organisational and individual level. With access to the latest research and thinking from the University of Cambridge and leading experts from our network, you will leave the seminar inspired to take leadership and create an enabling environment for sustainable business – identifying new opportunities for investment, innovation and collaboration.

Direct association with the programme and exposure to influential decision-makers within our 8,000-strong alumni network will support your reputation as leaders in business sustainability. Connect with peers and access the latest thinking through our newsletter and social media networks.
