The Future Living - Employees as the Drivers of Sustainable Change

Sustainability is becoming an increasingly relevant topic for organisations of all shapes and sizes. Nevertheless, turning sustainability into action by optimising an organisation's impact on the environment and society often requires a huge transformation.

The Future Living Organisational Sustainability Research, created in cooperation with the HTW Berlin University of Applied Science, explores the motives of organisations to become ecologically sustainable and the role of employees in this process.

Based on the research findings and practical examples, we discuss whether employee driven change is the right approach for tackling climate change and how it can be instigated in an organisational setting.

Benefits for the participants:

  • Exclusive insights into The Future Living Organisational Sustainability Research

  • Learn about the motivation of organisations to become more sustainable

  • Understand the role employees have in an organisation’s transition towards sustainability

  • Explore how employees can drive the change necessary to tackle climate change

  • Discuss how principles of coaching can aid an employee driven process
