Sustainability

In the past decade, climate change, geopolitical uncertainty, and an evolution in public attitudes have given sustainability a greater urgency and moved it higher on the corporate agenda. That has placed greater scrutiny and expectations on the NGOs, social enterprises, and nonprofits that comprise the global web of sustainability organizations. Businesses are having to become more sustainable, and sustainability organizations are having to become more businesslike in strategy, resource allocation, and transparency.

At Egon Zehnder, our Sustainability Practice is set up to find and develop leaders who can address the complex problems involving natural resources, ecological systems, and public health — and to do so at scale. Every member of our Sustainability Practice is also involved in other practices with significant sustainability implications, whether energy, consumer packaged goods, or public and social services. Our consultants include PhDs in engineering, industry leaders, and former heads of global sustainability organizations, with deep relationships all over the world. This range of experience and perspectives allows us to partner with our clients to build leadership teams that make a difference — contributing to environmental quality, long-term economic prosperity, and social equity.
