The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) changed its name from the University of Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership (CPSL) on April 4 2014.

"Founded in 1988, the University of Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership (CPSL) is an institution within the School of Technology of the University of Cambridge and is dedicated to working with leaders from business, government and civil society on the critical global challenges of the 21st century. CPSL contributes to the University’s mission and leadership position in the field of sustainability via a mix of executive programmes and business platforms, informed by world-class thinking and research from the University of Cambridge and other partners. Our Patron is HRH The Prince of Wales." [1]

"Over 25 years CISL has brought together business, government and academia to deepen leaders’ insight and understanding through our executive programmes, build deep, strategic engagement with leadership companies, and create opportunities for collaborative enquiry and action through our business platforms.

As we begin our second quarter-century, this small but significant change to our name symbolises our renewed focus on working with Cambridge’s world-class, multidisciplinary expertise to find solutions to critical sustainability challenges – to support business leadership for a sustainable world.

CISL has a leadership network with more than 5,000 alumni from leading global organisations and an expert team of Fellows, Senior Associates and staff. HRH The Prince of Wales is the Patron of CISL and has inspired and supported many of our initiatives..."[2]
