On 20 November an audience of leadership-level IEMA members heard an inspiring account of how the right leadership can transform an organisation and initiate a sea change in growth through exemplary sustainability performance.

Dr Paul Tebo, the former vice-president at DuPont, addressed senior members at IEMA's first "Connecting with..." event, which was hosted by Ricoh UK at Broadgate Tower in the City of London.

During his 35-year career, Tebo transformed DuPont from an environmental laggard to a position of global leadership in environment and sustainability by establishing the company's "The goal is zero" approach to stewardship. In recognition of his contributions to the company, in 2004 Tebo was the first recipient of DuPont's Sustainable growth lifetime achievement award. During his inspiring and interactive presentation, Tebo outlined how to build business value through sustainable growth and guided the audience on the power of influence and leadership.

Members stayed on for an extended networking and drinks reception, and initial feedback shows that members would like IEMA to hold more similar events.
