This publication looks at the role of corporate governance and leadership to ensure the continuity and progress of sustainable growth business models over time. Without a solid governance structure, sustainable growth strategies rely too much on executives who just happen to be dedicated. Ownership and responsibility must be felt throughout the organisation regardless of rotating sustainability enthusiasts in the board room. The adoption of clearly defined responsibilities vis-à-vis sustainable growth objectives is becoming widespread. This also applies to non-executive directors, as this publication will show.
