Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL)

CISL CSO Forum 2024

7 June 2024 – Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership convened Chief Sustainability Officers to consider how organisations can contribute to systems change and global leadership in an age of turbulence.

The CSO Forum on 6 June, which took place at CISL’s HQ the Entopia building, brought together CSOs from across a range of sectors including consumer goods, finance and technology to explore the key role that organisations can play to create the systems change needed so urgently.  The Forum began by identifying the challenges and opportunities for organisational leadership, informed by insights from CISL’s recent Global Leadership Summit. 

Participants then took part in a range of ‘clinics’, which explored and captured the practices needed to drive systems change, focusing on enablers such as scaling-up finance and innovation or how to shape a positive policy landscape. 

A panel session then drew together insights and implications from the clinics by exploring the systemic challenges and the role and leadership needed from business, finance and government. 

Ben Kellard, Director of Business Strategy, CISL, said: “It was great to see the candour, creativity and willingness to work together to explore solutions to shared challenges across different sectors”.
