Sustainability Leaders is well positioned to build the world’s most valued sustainability network to ensure that social responsibility is not just possible, but essential—globally in all industries and sectors.

Sustainability Leaders launches today, making it the first community of its kind to help organisations effect real change through a cross-functional sustainability network and insights. Sustainability Leaders will connect Chief Sustainability Officers and their teams with peers, other cross-functional teams and external experts to share knowledge and access vital insights that will help accelerate sustainable initiatives within the corporate world.

Powered by Procurement Leaders and parent company World 50, members of Sustainability Leaders have access to community-led insight, diagnostic models, practical tools, and expert guidance. This will support members’ journey to embedding sustainability excellence across the entire organisation.

The Sustainability Leaders community has already welcomed some of the world’s most respected brands as pioneer members, including Heineken and RWE.

By combining one-on-one connections with workshops and an intelligence-driven platform, Sustainability Leaders will support progress by:

  • Improving cross-functional sustainability alignment in their business
  • Planning for the next five years and evolving their sustainability function
  • Developing organisational and team capability and effecting change across value chains

“Sustainability Leaders is well positioned to build the world’s most valued sustainability network to ensure that social responsibility is not just possible, but essential—globally in all industries and sectors. While ESG topics are critical board mandates, improving environmental and social sustainability outcomes should not be isolated to one part of a business— they must be embedded across the entire organisation,” said Nandini Basuthakur, CEO of Procurement Leaders.

David Wilkie, CEO of World 50 said: "Sustainability Leaders will further enhance the capabilities of all members within the World 50 family of companies, accelerating member company success and connecting them to the insights they need to make an impact within their ecosystems and the world."
