Why become a Future Green Leader?

Our Future Green Leaders have unique access to industry leaders and sustainability experts.  We want to arm our future leaders with the skills and networks needed to develop their own leadership style, and drive meaningful change in their own organisations. We have created a new program for our Future Green Leaders to do just that.

Our new program will allow Future Green Leaders to:

  • Create meaningful networks with their peers and the broader industry
  • Develop knowledge within sustainability and exposure to new areas within the sector
  • Develop skills that will help you influence and lead the industry in the future

Through both face to face events and online learning we want to inspire and develop our future leaders.
