Latest from Ashridge on the business of sustainability

A couple of things coming out of Ashridge that may be of interest…

I posted a while back on a great event to launch the partnership between Ashridge Consulting and InterfaceRAISE, which featured a thought-provoking address from Interface chairman, Ray Anderson.

Building on that, Ashridge is now running a two-day workshop for senior executives, with five dates scheduled to the end of 2009. With numbers at each event limited to 12, it’s an intimate and intensive experience designed to help people identify actions that will have real strategic and operational impact. More info here.

It’s also just launched the Ashridge Sustainable Innovation Award, in association with EABIS, HP and WWF. Its long-running essay competition for European MBAs on the changing role of business in society this year focuses on sustainable innovation and how companies can create value from the shift towards a low-carbon economy.

Up for grabs is, amongst other things, a cash prize of Euro 7,000 (a sum not to be sniffed at, especially if you’re self-funding your MBA!). More info here.

    Hi Dan,

    great to see you blog about the Ashridge Sustainable Innovation Award. I’m part of the project team and I’m quite excited about this partnership with Ashridge, EABIS and WWF. Really looking forward to seeing the first submissions from students. I just wanted to add that the competition is also open to any other postgraduate students from a university that HP has a relationship with. You can see the full list of eligible universities at and you can find more information on my blog entry at
