“Engaging Leaders for Sustainability” – RECOL ELS – is a special project conducted in 2016. It aims to better understanding where companies stand in terms of systematically engaging their management for sustainability.

We conducted 30 interviews with business decision makers – senior executives, Heads of Human Resources and Sustainability/CR – and involved experts and thought leaders in a range of workshops.

Six building blocks of successful engagement have emerged as a result to help organizations navigate the necessary changes.

The project has been generously supported by Helvetia, Post, SV Group, Swisscom, Zurich and the Swiss Federal Office of Energy SFOE.

Project results are available at and we are planning a number of events and smaller meetings to present them.
