CEOs play a crucial role in embedding sustainability into the strategies and day-to-day decisions of their organizations. Based on over 100 interviews with CEOs, board members, and sustainability executives from a range of global companies and a review of prior academic research on CEO decision-making, we developed these resources to share insights on how corporate change agents can help influence CEO thinking on sustainability.
In our Guide
, we describe each of the characteristics in detail, incorporating as many direct experiences as possible, to help sustainability change agents think about how to support their CEO. We also developed a Tactical Inventory
to help change agents reflect on these tactics and to identify which of them might be most appropriate for their own setting.
