What skills do leadership teams need to create planet-positive impact? The first is agility. That’s about process, governance and making sure that enablers are in place to help create rapid change. Too many great ideas fail at the start because organisations have too many barriers associated with processes and ways of working.
The importance and value of having an organisational culture that is flexible to the demands of the modern world is often key to commercial success.
What's not often discussed is the importance of agility when driving action on environmental and social commitments. We all want to get to net zero, but the path there is going to be anything but linear.

One common mistake is businesses don't integrate Net Zero strategy into their core corporate strategy. With sustainability, you must weave it into everything that you do, and every pillar of your strategy must have a sustainability lens to create a direct link between your planet-positive commitments and the operational levers needed to realise them.

Larger organisations tend to be hierarchical and fail to delegate when it comes to who is responsible for driving ecosystem change, while junior staff don’t feel empowered to act. Implementing change is only possible by thinking beyond the C-Suite.
