    Goals / Remit

    The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) is an institution within the University of Cambridge. Our mission is to empower individuals and organisations to take leadership to tackle critical global challenges.

    Across complex and connected issues, we challenge, inform and support leaders from business and policy to deliver change towards sustainability. We help influential individuals, major organisations and whole sectors develop strategies that reconcile profitability and sustainability and to work collaboratively with their peers not only to develop solutions to shared challenges but also catalyse real systems change.

    Capitalizing on the world-class multidisciplinary strengths of the University of Cambridge, CISL deepens leaders' insight and understanding through its executive education programmes; builds deep, strategic engagement with leadership companies; and creates opportunities for collaborative enquiry and action through its business platforms.

    Over 25 years, CISL has developed a leadership network with more than 7,000 alumni from leading global organisations and an expert team of Fellows, Senior Associates and staff.
