Huw Maggs Featured in New Zealand’s Sustainable Business Council Annual Snapshot

SustainAbility Latest - Sun, Jul 20, 2014 - 11:52 pm

SustainAbility’s Senior Manager Huw Maggs was featured in New Zealand’s Sustainable Business Council (SBC) Annual Snapshot in which he wrote an article on SustainAbility’s Extended Leadership framework.

This past March, SBC’s Executive Director Penny Nelson visited the UK on a study trip funded by the British High Commission to explore some of the organisations and initiatives that offer insight and learning opportunities for SBC. SustainAbility was delighted to welcome Penny to our office for a rich discussion on common areas of interest.

A good deal of the discussion centred on our 2013 Changing Tack report, the final output of our extensive one-year Regeneration Roadmap project. In pursuit of sustainable development within the next generation, the Regeneration Roadmap sought to develop a guide for private sector action in the years ahead, including a new model for future sustainability leadership, Extended Leadership.

Huw Maggs will continue this discussion around Extended Leadership with SBC members via a webinar to be be announced later in the year.

About the Sustainable Business Council
The SBC is an executive led organisation that advocates a better way of doing business, one which helps create a sustainable future for New Zealand. It is the voice of sustainable business in New Zealand and the NZ Global Network partner to the WBCSD.
