This publication brings together a selection of case studies from the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) alumni, drawing particularly on alumni of The Prince of Wales’s Business & Sustainability Programme, and designed to help leaders understand the sustainability challenges and address some of the potential responses to them. The cases are grouped using the Five Capitals Model. Developed by Forum for the Future and widely used in CISL’s programmes, the model is one way of describing the stocks and flows of resources (natural, social, human, financial and manufactured) as they relate to a sustainable society and economy.
