Sustainable Business Leaders

As a business professional passionate about sustainability, you must have the right knowledge to be a sustainable 'game-changer'. Use your peer group to make sure you are on the right track.

You deserves a good network

The era of sustainability has begun and every company has a responsibility to reduce its environmental impact.

But, how do you define your goals? How do you secure active commitment and investment from key internal stakeholders and from those across your supply chain? What are the opportunities and the challenges?

Join EGN’s new peer group on sustainability to learn how to lead the way. We promise you a network and a setting to learn with and from your peers.

About the new Peer Group

We are forming this new peer group to bring together business leaders with a high-level responsibility for the design and implementation of their company’s sustainability strategy and policies.

If you are forward-thinking and in-charge of finding even better, greener ways for your company to operate, then this group is for you!

We ensure a good mix of industries creating a diversity of perspectives and richness of innovative ideas for you and your company.

Purposefully, we restrict membership to business executives, decision-makers and critical influencers – and, we avoid recruiting direct competitors to any member.

Since this is a peer network, we also do not allow consultants and other vendors to become members, preferring instead to invite them to provide expert insights as guest speakers should that be of interest to the group members.

Potential topics for the peer group meetings

Our meetings focus on the challenges our members find the most important. They exchange views and experiences, gain new perspectives, get feedback on their ideas, and reflect on future best practices.
The discussions are held on the strategic level; some topics could be:

  • Your business’s Sustainability Strategy
    • switching from reactive to proactive
    • development, implementation, and governance
    • from strategy to action – creating enhanced business performance with sustainability
    • the tension between long-term sustainability initiatives (requiring investment) and the need for short-term business results and uplift
       
  • Cross-border initiatives, regulations, and laws (and integrating them in your business approach)
    • EU’ Green Deal and “Fit for 25” roadmap
