Electric transport leaders feature in the Top 100 CSOs

Sustainability Magazine’s Top 100 CSOs shares appreciation for leaders across all industries, emphasising electrification of the world’s energy network

In October 2023, Sustainability Magazine celebrated 100 of the leading Chief Sustainability Officers (CSOs) in the corporate world. Many of them are known among their communities as advocates of change and evangelists of collaboration and simplification or environmental, social and governance (ESG) in business.

What to expect in 2024

In 2024, we’ll be expanding on the Top 100 series to recognise the executives and leaders across the energy and EV sectors. As these trends grow there will be more scope of talent and acquisitions in these areas, and sector-specific roles to drive initiatives forward. 

EV and Energy Magazines will have their own Top 100 lists alongside the established Sustainability versions, and be incorporated in more events throughout the year.
