The Business & the Environment Programme aims to help a select group of highly influential decision-makers understand the challenges and opportunities of sustainable development, to inspire them to make the necessary changes within their organisations and beyond, and to become champions who will help business and society work together to create sustainable economic development.

One of the goals of bringing this Programme to Australia was a progression towards building and harnessing innovation within Victoria and Australia’s business leaders. It helped these business leaders contribute their ideas and experiences to building the capacities of other people and organisations involved in the University of Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership’s activities, and those from their own industry sectors.

Australian BEP Seminar for Senior Executives

This Sustainability Covenant supported the development of an Australian based BEP Seminar for Senior Executives. The BEP seminars and alumni activities were internationally recognised as providing a unique opportunity to debate and understand the business case for sustainability with the pre-eminent international figures in the field. These included leaders working in business, academia, government and non-government organisations.
