Building the future's leaders and creating sustainable organisations

The Institute for Sustainable Leadership is an independent non-profit organisation that promotes the science and practice of sustainable leadership through research and education.

Sustainable leadership incorporates those behaviours, practices and systems that create enduring value for all stakeholders of organisations including investors, the environment, other species, future generations and the community.

Affiliates include professional managers, academics and researchers from around the world, who promote the adoption of sustainable leadership principles in both large and small enterprises.

With a strong practical orientation, our models and frameworks have been developed from observations of best practice organisations based in different parts of the world. However, the principles of sustainable leadership are also well supported by evidence gathered by a network of affiliated international university collaborators, including masters and doctoral research students.
