Globalisation has brought to the fore the need for interaction and collaboration between government, civil society and business in the further development of global wealth whilst protecting the ability of the biosphere to support the longevity of mankind.

This is not an easy task. It calls for considerable ability incorporating new skills that will be demanded of future corporate leaders.
