Ben Kellard

Director of Business Strategy, Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership

Ben advises leading businesses on how to align their purpose and strategy with the transition to a sustainable economy.  He specialises in developing best-practice for how to develop and integrate a sustainable purpose into an organisation.  He authored the 'Leading with a sustainable purpose’ report that captures practical insights from four leading businesses.  As well as shaping CISL's research into what a sustainable, purpose-driven business looks like, he collaborates with several international initiatives that share the same goal.  He was on the steering committee of PAS 808, the first ever BSI standard for a sustainable purpose-led organisation.

He draws on over twenty years of experience as an organisational development consultant, eleven of which were with the international not-for-profit Forum for the Future.
