Change leaders

Effective sustainability solutions lead to positive changes. All our solutions are backed by a company head and change leader who creates, launches, supports and implements the change.

We are convinced that business enterprises which are successful in the long term play a key role in promoting sustainability.
This is why ever more change leaders are needed: in other words, business decision-makers who go beyond the business as usual approach – a focus on maximizing short-term profits – and who are capable of engaging with a strategic perspective beyond business as usual, also putting emphasis on supporting sustainability issues. This involves creating new business models, processes, progressive and novel solutions, products and services.

We are convinced that, together with these change leaders, BCSDH can raise the sustainability orbit of Hungary to the next level.
