Company directors and senior executives from a range of sectors across the Scottish economy will come together in Stirling on 17-18 August and 21-22 September to participate in Scotland’s inaugural Sustainability Leadership Development Programme.

This innovative executive education programme, designed and delivered jointly by the University of Stirling Management School’s Centre for Sustainable Practice and Living (CSPL) and the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) in close collaboration with the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, is attractive to forward-thinking “movers and shakers” who are going to drive rapid transformational change across the Scottish economy by placing sustainability at the core of their organisations’ business models.

Terry A’Hearn, CEO, Scottish Environment Protection Agency, and Senior Associate, CISL said “The only profitable businesses in the 21st Century will have low environmental impact. They will be visionary. They will see the environment and social issues as massive market opportunities. The programme will help Scottish senior executives and decision-makers to do just this.”

Professor Sharon Bolton, Dean and Head of Stirling Management School and IoD Scotland member said “Scottish business leaders must constantly adapt and respond to external influences including climate, environment, economic, geo-political and social change and shocks.  The collaborative nature of this programme will equip busy executives with insights, tools and a framework to turn these threats into opportunities and accelerate the creation of new pathways towards greater economic, social and environmental success.”

The format is highly participative and experiential, with hands-on focus on issues specific to businesses based in Scotland serving either domestic or international markets.
