Seize opportunities from all sides

The consensus among organisations around the world is that rising global temperatures pose a significant risk to social, economic, and ecological systems. Organisations need to act. But how, and how quickly? What are the opportunities in responding to climate challenges? What is the best way to navigate constantly changing compliance and reporting requirements?

Leading in Sustainability and Climate Change

Sustainability isn’t one thing, it’s the sum of many parts. As a business leader, you need to understand each component – from the science to its economics and governance – if you want your business to thrive in the future.

This is why we’re launching the inaugural C-suite programme on sustainability.
Leading in Sustainability and Climate Change: Lessons from the Little Green Dot 

This programme leverages NUS’s multidisciplinary expertise and research excellence. With contributions from various schools and centres, we’re combining the best and brightest minds at NUS to help you navigate sustainability.

Here you’ll expand your knowledge of the macro factors that affect the intersection of business and sustainability. You’ll acquire tools to navigate the business, regulatory and technical aspects, and spot growth opportunities in sustainable practices.

Programme Directors


A/Prof L. Roman Carrasco

Dr. L. Roman Carrasco is an Associate Professor and Assistant Head of Department at the Department of Biological Sciences, NUS Faculty of Science. His key research areas are in conservation science, ecological economics, sustainability science, land use change and environmental health.

He is also the Principal Investigator of the BioEcon Lab at the Department of Biological Sciences; the main research focus of the BioEcon lab gravitates around sustainability. The lab aims to identify strategies for the reconciliation of biodiversity conservation, food security and economic development in the tropics. The research developed in the lab deals with the complex interactions occurring in tropical socio-ecological systems. This complexity requires an interdisciplinary approach where biological models are linked to economics through bio-economic modeling. Specific research topics of the lab are: tropical forests conservation, trade-offs between agriculture and ecosystem services and benefits to humans from nature.

Prof Carrasco holds a Ph.D. in Environmental Research from Imperial College London, United Kingdom.



Prof Benjamin Cashore

Dr. Ben Cashore is the Li Ka Shing Professor in Public Management and Director, the Public Policy Initiative for Environment and Sustainability, LKY School of Public Policy. Prof Cashore specialises in global and multi-level environmental governance, comparative public policy and administration, and transnational business regulation/ corporate social responsibility. His substantive research interests include climate policy, biodiversity conservation/land use change, and sustainable environmental management of forests and related agricultural sectors. His geographic focus includes Southeast Asia, North America, Latin America and Europe.

Prof Cashore's theoretical interests include the legitimacy and authority requirements of non-state market driven (NSMD) global governance, the influence of economic globalisation on domestic environmental policies, and the potential of anticipatory policy design for identifying path dependent policy mixes capable of ameliorating “super wicked” environmental problems. He integrates his theoretical and empirical research around two key themes:

1) developing and managing problem oriented multi-stakeholder policy learning processes

2) strategies for nurturing multiple step policy pathways

He joined LKYSPP after spending 18 years at Yale University as a professor of environmental governance and political science, where he also directed the Governance, Environment and Markets (GEM) initiative and, from 2014-2019, directed the Yale International Fox Fellows exchange program which awards promising graduate students in 18 partner universities. Ben was born and raised in British Columbia, Canada. His PhD is from the University of Toronto and he undertook postdoctoral research at Harvard University and the University of British Columbia. He worked for three years in Ottawa, Canada as a policy advisor to the leader of the Canadian New Democratic Party.
