North Star: Purpose-driven Leadership for the 21st Century

2017-2018 Global CEO Study - Leaders at the Forefront

What role do organizations play in sustainable development as set out by the United Nations (UN) 2030 Agenda? How can companies strategically anchor a corresponding self-consciousness in their actions, and what does management mean in this context?

You can find the answers in a study performed by the “Leaders on Purpose” organization with support from Horváth & Partners. The study is based on interviews with CEOs of leading companies; these have strategically aligned their organizations so that they pay into the UN Sustainability Development Goals. The results were presented to the World Bank in Washington, D.C. on April 19, 2018, and then expanded in workshops with managers. “Leaders on Purpose” was established by thought leaders at Harvard University, the London School of Economics, and the World Bank. It identifies and promotes innovative approaches to sustainable business development in order to support the long-term viability of organizations and the fulfillment of the UN Sustainability Development Goals.
