THERE IS A NEED FOR A "NEXT GENERATION LEADERSHIP" WITH THE WILLINGNESS TO MAKE DECISIONS ON THE BASIS OF SUSTAINABILITY.
NELIS – Next Leaders' Initiative for Sustainability
The idea behind NELIS goes back to Japan in 2004, at a time when Peter David, NELIS co-founder, worked on sustainability strategy with multinational corporations. Through frustrations with stagnant change, Peter realized that although there are many good people in corporations, the system in which they are embedded makes it unlikely that any kind of “sustainable” future could ever be possible. Peter David foresaw that another approach would be needed, and that was when NELIS was created.
